With schools closed and League of Ireland games postponed, our reporter Tom O’Connor (@LoiMuinteoir) has been hard at work and has produced a set of club specific lessons suitable for 3rd to 6th class students. Over the coming week, he will add lessons for each of the League Of Ireland clubs.

With parents trying to keep their children entertained and educated during this difficult period, the lessons are a perfect combination for any parent with a football-loving child.  

O’Connor, a teacher by trade and author of the award-nominated series “Education: Life Beyond Soccer,” is hoping these lesson packs will be of assistance to parents.

“I started this idea on Twitter and I am delighted extratime.ie were willing to promote and host the lessons. I would love if clubs would come on board and link the packs on their websites and social media channels.

“For now we have four or five club packs complete but we will keep producing them over the next few days and we will also have an Irish pack for St. Patrick’s Day.”

The first lessons are available below and, as new lessons are ready, they will be added and linked below. (With thanks to Jason Carey and Colm O Riain for creating the Peamount United and General Maths packs respectively.)
