Dainséar an dhúshlán MOMO

Tá dúshlán nua dainséarach amuigh ansin dár bpáistí anois dárbh ainm an "MOMO challenge". Thíos tá fógra a fuaireamar ó Zeeko (a chuir traenáil Sábháilteachta ar fáil dúinn níos luaithe sa mhí). Tá tuismitheoirí tar éis a bheith i dteagmháíl linn ón mBriseadh Meán Tearma ag insint dúinn go bhfuil a bpáistí tar éis teachtaireachtaí a fháil ó pháistí eile maidir leis an dúshlán seo. Is dúshlán Féinmharú í seo agus tá scoileanna gus tuismitheoirí an-buartha faoi go deo. Bígí an-aireach faoi cad ata á fheiceáil ag bhur bpáistí agus labhair leo go rialta chun cinntiú nach bhfuil aon rud ag deanamh buairt orthu.

There is a new and dangerous challenge called the "Momo Challenge" out there for our children at present. Below is a Memo received from Zeeko this morning (Zeeko gave pupils and parents Safety on the Internet training earlier this month). The school has had concerned parents ring to tell us that their children have received messages from other children about this challenge. It is a Suicide Challenge and is very concerning for us and for all parents. Please be aware of what your children are seeing online and receiving in their messages. Please speak to them regularly to ensure that their worries are being heard.

WHAT IS THE MOMO CHALLENGE

The “Momo challenge” has recently started to appear on social media platforms as a form of cyber-chain letter. Chain letters provide a great deal of shock, or trigger anxiety, which prompts the reader to share the stories/ information or obey the tasks that the chain letters contain. Gardai have issued a warning regarding this "suicide game".

Within this game, there is woman that tells individuals to communicate with her via WhatsApp and other platforms. When contact is made, the woman reportedly asks individuals to perform dangerous tasks, including self-harm.
