The Joe McDonnagh Foundation


The Joe McDonagh Foundation is a support service provided by Glór na nGael and the Gaelic Athletic Association to GAA clubs wishing to further the Irish Language in their community.  Most clubs have been promoting the Irish language in some form or another. The Foundation is here to help develop that promotion in a more measured and planned fashion. Glór na nGael will offer help to the Oifigeach Gaeilge to give them direction, support and ideas to build on the good work that has already been done within the club.  Grants are available from the Foundation to help realise your plans and medals will be awarded to clubs for various levels of achievement in promotion of the language.

By registering with the Foundation your club is giving a commitment to actively promote the Irish Language and to make it an important aspect of the daily life of your club.  Seize the opportunity! Sign up and declare your club’s support for the Irish Language.

As well as awarding grants and medals The Foundation will ensure that clubs are provided professional and helpful advice every step of the way on their language journey.  A named advisor, based locally, with relevant experience and sound ideas will always be at hand to discuss the clubs progress.

Contact Glór na nGael frainc@glornangael.ie or at our offices to speak to us about registering.  There is a €30 fee to register with the Foundation per calendar year.
