The FAI and Libraries Ireland linked up with Monaghan County Libaries to create this 28-page book that will help children learn more about the Ireland team and the World Cup all while encouraging their creativity and enhancing their skills.

This will build on the Women’s World Cup excitement.

FAI Marketing & Communications Director, Louise Cassidy, said: “With the excitement building for FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, we are delighted to launch this Activity Book to ensure that children all around the country get fully engaged with the tournament, learn all about their heroes in the Ireland Women’s National Team and have fun completing the tasks.

“In what is a very special year for women and girls’ football in Ireland, it is important that the success of the Ireland team on the pitch is matched by development of the game off it; this book is very much part of that.

“A lot of hard work went into producing the book and we are sure that children, of all ages, will enjoy it and take a lot from it.”
