Minister of State for Gaeltacht Affairs, Joe McHugh T.D., has announced today that he has sanctioned an operational grant of €65,000 for Oideas Gael Teo for 2015.
The grant has been sanctioned to assist with the operational costs associated with running the courses provided by Oideas Gael.
Announcing the grant, the Minister of State said: “Oideas Gael is an excellent example for every organisation promoting Irish in the country. They bring hundreds of people to Gleann Cholm Cille every year, greatly contributing to the local economy and promoting the Irish language at home and abroad.
“In addition, they encourage many learners to take part in the life of the Irish language and Gaeltacht communities. I am delighted to be in a position to provide this assistance to Oideas Gael for 2015.”
