Túsla Child & Family Agency



















Hi Everyone,

Happy New year everyone, we hope 2021 is a safe and healthy one for all.


Unfortunately the girls have not been able to return to school as planned.

We would like to thanks Ms Maloney and the teachers for all their work in preparing the girls for the possibility of homeschooling earlier in the year, hopefully it will make the transition to homeschooling easier for all.


The girls be learning from home for the next number of weeks and many of you will be working from home / or at home expectantly, this can cause  anxiety and stress in both parents and children.

There are a number of services available to support families who may be experiencing difficulties and we will try to keep you updated with any information we receive.


Please see above a phoneline support service that is now being offered for all parents in Mayo.


Common Sense Parenting courses are also being organised via zoom. If you are interested in attending a course, please contact Martina on 087 7739001 or email:


If you have any questions / queries or would like support in any way, we will do our best to help you / point you in the right direction, you can contact us on:


Warm regards,


Teresa Quinn,

On behalf of The Parents Association.
