What is #Dúshlán?
#Dúshlán is a competition aimed at second and third level students to encourage them to engage with Irish in a fun way. It gives students the opportunity to engage with Irish naturally, outside of the classroom and with their friends.

There are be 30 challenges to undertake within 50 hours. Young people can participate in #Dúshlán2022 in a Covid-compliant manner, with some of the challenges being done in school and others at home. 

How does it work?
You sign up as a team of three people.

After registering, your team receives an email with your team number and more details about how to take part in the competition. 

The competition begins at 12:00 on the first day, when the list of challenges will be released to every team, on the Conradh na Gaeilge website and by email.

All teams must send us evidence of every challenge they carry out with pictures, videos or recordings on WhatsApp. Each member of the team must have access to WhatsApp in order to take part in the competition. Each team must create a WhatsApp group with every member of the team and our number, +353 85 2416716 to send evidence to us. Participants will need to access TikTok, Instagram and WhatsApp accounts, therefore the competition is only open to students in Third Year or above.

The winners will be the team that carries out every challenge within the 50 hour time limit. If more than one team manages to do this, first place winners will be chosen based on how creativity and quality. This year, for the first time ever, there are separate prizes for the best secondary school team and the best university team.

Every student who takes part in the competition will receive a certificate.
