A national day of creativity for children and young people, Cruinniú na nÓg took place on Saturday and Fingal played its part.

Children and young people were invited to take part in a range of events and workshops presented to you by Fingal County Council.

All events were free of charge, child-centred and activity-based. It's a day for lots of doing, making and creating.

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, and as part of the Government's #InThisTogether campaign, Fingal County Council brought Cruinniú na nÓg online for 2020.

Mayor Eoghan O Brien said: 'This years programme of events includes free online workshops in coding, photography, photogram, storytelling, dance, singing, visual arts, yoga and even ice cream making.

'The importance of harnessing creativity in our young people cannot be underestimated particularly in the current climate and we are proud to present a programme of events which allows the voice of our young people to be heard and nourishes their wellbeing through participation in creative activities.'

Chief Executive of Fingal County Council, AnnMarie Farrelly said: 'Cruinniú na nÓg has gone from strength to strength over the past two years in Fingal and we are proud to participate again this year making available over 25 free online workshops for children and young people across a broad range of creative disciplines.'
