Age Action through the University of the Third Age network (U3A) helps bring lifelong learning to those in the 'third age'. This is defined by a period in life in which full time employment has ceased. Members form interest groups covering as wide a range of topics and activities as they desire; by the members, for the members.
No qualifications are sought or offered. Learning is for its own sake, with enjoyment being the prime motive, not qualifications or awards.
There are 30 U3A groups operating throughout Ireland. As a result of COVID-19 none of the U3A groups are holding their regular face to face meetings. Some of the groups have set up meetings using Zoom and continue to engage virtually. Age Action facilitates a series of webinars (using Zoom) for all who can and would like to engage in discussions.
