Welcome to Scríobh Leabhar

Foras na Gaeilge, the body responsible for the promotion of the Irish language throughout the island of Ireland is delighted to present here a selection of some of the books written by children as part of the Scríobh Leabhar 2015 project.

More than 6,500 primary school pupils across the country have had the chance to be an author as part of Foras na Gaeilge’s ‘Scríobh Leabhar’ project. The annual programme aims to encourage budding young Irish language authors in their writing endeavours.


8 Education Centres took part in the project in the school year 2014/15.

We would like to thank the directors and staff of the following centres and organisations who organised the Scríobh Leabhar project for primary schools in their areas:

  • Ionad Oideachais an Chláir
  • Ionad Oideachais Iarthar Chorcaí
  • Ionad Oideachais Laoise
  • Ionad Oideachais Mhaigh Eo
  • Ionad Oideachais Thrá Lí
  • Ionad na Múinteoirí, Gort an Choirce
  • Ionad Oideachais Chora Druma Rúisc
  • Ionad Oideachais Bhaile Átha Cliath Thiar


Congratulations to each teacher and student who took part in the project. Thousands of books were written, but unfortunately we can only include a small selection of them here. We hope you enjoy them.

If your class or school would like to take part in Scríobh Leabhar check with your local education centre to see if the project is taking place there this year.
