Cruinniú na nÓg – Unleash your creative spirit!

Cruinniú na nÓg will take place on Saturday 13th June. It is Ireland’s national day of creative activity for children and young people – and entire families. So get ready to answer the call, to celebrate your creative talents, and to share them with the nation. It’s a day for doing, making and creating.

Check out the fantastic events organised for you by Roscommon County Council Arts Office, Heritage Office and Library Service, Roscommon Arts Centre, Music Generation Roscommon and Roscommon County Youth Theatre at

In order to make the event happen this year, most activities are online and there’s an element of getting out and about too with tutorials to encourage heritage explorations within your own 5km! These are just some of the events which require action before the 13th June.
