A big congratulations to John Foley from Waterford Institute of Technology for winning Léiriúcháin Teilifíse i nGaeilge with his production, Díoltas. The sponsors for this award were Údarás na Gaeltachta. 

Údarás na Gaeltachta are committed to ensuring the Irish language remains prominent across Irish broadcasts. Through providing funding and working in partnership with youths in Gaeltacht areas, Údarás na Gaeltachta aims to represent the Gaeltacht areas in Ireland which are sometimes forgotten about, despite them representing Irish culture. 

Through various projects such as festivals, dramas, seminars, educational workshops, Údarás na Gaeltachta continue to try to promote the Irish language, and we are delighted to have them as our sponsor at this year’s Smedias. Well done to John Foley and thank you to Údarás na Gaeltachta.
