TY No Phone Challenge by Orlaith O Connor

On Tuesday the 24th of October our Transition Years took on a very difficult challenge to raise money for Enable Ireland. Transition Year students handed up their phones for 24 hours. Enable Ireland challenged students from all over the country to take part in their fundraiser. At 12pm on Tuesday The students reluctantly dropped their phones into the box to be locked away at school for the night!



At first, students were enthusiastic and were not too lonely after their beloved gadgets but as the day slowly progressed the anxiety began to kick in! Students were constantly reaching into their pockets only to remember there was nothing there!


Their moods began to change Tuesday evening as they began to miss their phones more and more every minute. They found it hard to even have a proper conversation with each other as they are so used to constantly being on their mobiles.


However, as much stress and anxiety it may have caused them, our students were successful in raising money for an excellent cause and living a whole 24 hours without the use of their phones.

Comhairle na nÓg


Pictured above are students who attended Comhairle na nOg in Tralee on Friday 13th October 2017: Elaine Wang, Laura Looney, Ailbhe Murphy and Aileen Healy.

 The Department of Children and Youth Affairs oversees Comhairle na nÓg, the delivery of which is the responsibility of each Local Authority.  There are 31 Comhairlí na nÓg nationally, and the aim is to ensure that the voice of young people is heard when developing policy and local services.  Kerry County Council works with the Kerry Diocesan Youth Service to ensure the success of this project at local level. Young people aged 12-18 are invited to participate in the AGM which took place on Friday 13th October.  Facilitated workshops took place, where those present identified and worked on issues of importance to them before agreeing the next steps of working with key local decision-makers.  One of the objectives was to raise awareness around how people can influence policy decisions. Also on the day, an election process, which elects young people to the Kerry Comhairle na nÓg for the next term took place.  Those elected are afforded opportunities to attend national events and to represent young people on a number of policy making bodies both at county level and nationally.
