We are delighted to announce that Foras na Gaeilge has returned to sponsor the ‘Iriseoireacht Trí Ghaeilge Scríofa’ award at this year’s SMEDIAS.

Foras na Gaeilge was created in 1999 following the Good Friday Agreement with the aim of promoting the Irish language throughout the country.

The Irish language is a crucial element of our culture and history. Foras Na Gaeilge recognises this by continuously supporting and advising administrations in all matters relating to the Irish language across the country, especially through education and the media.

We are thrilled to have Foras na Gaeilge involved in the awards and to be part of the good work that they do. By sponsoring this award they preserve the Irish language and support student writers! Foras na Gaeilge’s sponsorship gives third-level students a fantastic opportunity to have their work recognised and judged by industry professionals. It also gives them the opportunity to get introduced to other student writers, which builds their network and increases their chances of work opportunities in the future.
