Welcome To The Fatherhood Progamme!

Here at the Fatherhood Programme we are all about “celebrating the joy of fatherhood and all things paternal and we love mums too!”


Brendan and Seán discuss the transition from secondary school to college and the world of work. Is the “traditional” university route the best? What competing concerns do parents and students encounter?

Brendan – guest speaker in Apple’s European Headquarters for their Inclusion and Diversity Week 2019.

In late June 2019, Brendan was invited to take part in Apple’s Inclusion & Diversity Week. He spoke to parents about their well being and the importance of their role in their child’s life. He also spoke about teaching our children to have growth mindset and the habit of gratitude in achieving happiness.

He talks about ‘Quiz Kidz‘ – the three questions you can ask your children to find out how your doing as a parent…described by one Dad as ‘life changing’.
