Silver Award Ceremonies

Gaisce is delighted to announce it will be holding 2 more Silver Ceremonies this year. If you are a PAL with Silver participants completed and signed off online by 7th October 2019, you and your participants will be invited to our Autumn and Winter Silver Award ceremonies listed above. Further ceremonies will take place in Spring 2020. Unfortunately, Gaisce has had to postpone our Donegal Ceremony. Apologies for any inconveniences caused to participants and PALs. Our Dublin and Cork dates will go ahead as planned. 

Going for Gold

Going for Gold is an information session for participants and PALs interested in the Gold Award. Autumn sessions will be held in Donegal, Cork and Dublin ahead of our three Silver Ceremonies.  The sessions are a great opportunity to ask the Gaisce team any questions you have about the Gold Award. The Going for Gold Sessions are strongly recommended for PALs, participants or anyone considering the Gold Award. You can book Going for Gold now via the Eventbrite links above.
