Annual Irish Language Prize

Irish in Britain joins with Coláiste na nGael to award an annual Irish language prize. 

“Tá Irish in Britain ar thús cadhnaíochta ar chúram, ar fheachtas agus ar obair chultúrtha. Tá gradam bliantúil Gaeilge againn. Molaimid oibrí deonach óg as a gcuid oibre ar cur chun cinn ár dteanga agus ár gcultúr sa Bhreatain. Tá an dámhachtain tábhachtach mar go gcuireann ár gcultúr fáilte roimh gach duine. Maoiníonn Coláiste na nGael an duais. Tá siad ina bhall bródúil as Irish in Britain.”

“Irish in Britain is at the forefront of welfare, campaigning and cultural work. The Annual Irish Language Award recognises a volunteer or organisation within Irish in Britain who has done the most to promote our language and culture in Britain. The Award is important because Ireland’s culture is inclusive, welcoming and open to all. Funds for the prize come from Coláiste na nGael, who are proud members of Irish in Britain”

Christy Evans, Coláiste na nGael
