Minister of State for Gaeltacht Affairs, Joe McHugh T.D., has today (Monday, 27 April) announced that he has sanctioned a grant of €10,000 for CLG Ard an Rátha towards the costs they will incur from running the national competition, Comórtas Peile na Gaeltachta, this year.
Announcing the grant, Minister of State McHugh said that he is pleased to be in a position to provide this grant. “I am sure that a wonderful time will be had in Ard an Rátha during the competition. I expect that this national competition and the crowds of Irish speakers from all over the country who will be attending it will contribute to CLG Ard an Rátha’s ongoing efforts to promote the Irish language within the organisation as well as in the community, particularly among young people” said the Minister of State.
