37 medals to be presented to GAA clubs

The President of the Gaelic Athletic Association, John Horan, will present medals to 37 GAA clubs in recognition of the work they have done to promote the Irish language in their clubs at a presentation ceremony in Páirc an Chrócaigh – Croke Park on Saturday 14 December 2019.

Fondúireacht Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha,  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.

Over 135 clubs participated in the scheme in 2019. This is an increase of 40% compared to 2018.
