Marathonkids Ireland welcomes Gaeltachta na hÉireann

Following a successful partnership with the Marathonfamiles Programme during the lockdown Gaeltachta na hÉirinn and Marathonkids Ireland have launched Maratón na bPáistí in Gaeltachta throughout the Country.

This has seen nearly 1400 students start the 8 week programme this October.

Maratón na bPáistí is delivered through our Gaeltacht Booklet and each student will receive their Maratón na bPáistí t-shirt and Finisher medal on completion of their first marathon.


“Tá Marathon Kids Ireland thar a bheith sásta fáilte a chur roimh na 1,360 páiste ó scoileanna ar fud na Gaeltachta a bhfuil Martaón na bPáistí tosaithe acu!” 

“Marathon Kids Ireland are delighted to welcome the 1,360 kids in schools throughout the Gaeltacht who have started Maratón na bPáistí!”

Neil Kennedy, Director Marathonkids Ireland


“Ó cheann ceann na Gaeltachta, ó oileán Árainn Mhór i nDún na nGall go Ciarraí Theas, agus ó Chonamara go Ráth Cairn i gCo. na Mí, go n-éirigh go geal leis na páistí uile atá ag glacadh páirt sa Mharatón, ó Oifigigh Pleanála Teanga na Gaeltachta!”

“The best of luck to kids all over the Gaeltacht, from Árainn Mhór island in Donegal to South Kerry, and from Conamara in the West to Ráth Cairn in County Meath, who have started the Marathon from the Gaeltacht Language Planning Officers!”

    A chara. I would like to register my school, Gaelscoil Uí Earcáin, for Marathon Kids for the school year 2021/2022. I was told registration would be available from 11pm on Friday the 25th of June however I cannot find the link/registration page. I was hoping I could register and if you could contact me, preferably before Wednesday the 30th as our school will be closed then until the school year 2021/2022. Hoping to hear from you soon.

    Le meas,
    Deirdre Nic Eoin.
