Scéalta Super Paua

Éistigí! Listen here! Join Super Paua and Mother Tongues for Super Paua Stories/Scéalta Super Paua, six audio story adventures for young people aged 5-12. 

Scéalta Super Paua/Super Paua Stories, an podchraoladh ina bhfuil caora an-tógtha le brioscaí eagsúla (Caoimhe agus na Caoga Caorigh Craicáilte); ina bhfuil do chuid féinmhuiníne níos tábhachtaí ná na rudaí a inseann daoine eile duit (Niamh’s Nuacht); ina bhfuil an tsamhlaíocht níos láidre ná gnáthshaol na scoile (Lara ar Strae); where we share our tales of bilingual gardening rivalries (Fiachra and the Biscuit Tin Garden); our tales of shapeshifting aliens and purple haired grannies who beat everyone at football (Sam and the Shapeshifters); and our best bear hugging techniques with you, our toe-typing listeners (Hug Me With Your Words).

There is a mix of stories as Gaeilge, dátheangach (bilingual in Irish and English) and in English. With every story there will be a themed activity; a call to arms for young people and their grown ups to combine art and the languages they speak in a creative, exciting way.

Scéalta Super Paua was supported by axis:Ballymun.
