On Friday evening, December 1st, Fondúireacht Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha awards were presented to a distinguished assembly of 55 Cumann Lúthchleas Gael (GAA) clubs from across Ireland. This prestigious ceremony took place at Croke Park, marking a significant celebration of the commitment to the Irish language within the GAA community.

The event saw three county Mayo clubs being honoured for their outstanding contributions. Kiltimagh GAA and Mayo Gaels (unable to be present on the night) were recognised with silver medals. Notably, Castlebar Mitchells achieved the distinction of being one of only seven clubs to receive a Gold Medal.

Representatives from the clubs were present at Croke Park to proudly accept their awards, symbolising their dedication to promoting the Irish language both within their clubs and in their broader local communities.

Fondúireacht Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha is a collaborative initiative between Glór na nGael and the GAA. The partnership is dedicated to enhancing the presence and usage of the Irish language across GAA clubs nationwide. These medals serve as a testament to the clubs' ongoing efforts in integrating the Irish language into their activities and fostering its growth among their members and communities.

This event not only acknowledges individual club achievements but also reinforces the importance of preserving and promoting the Irish language through sport.
