Book Launch and Foras na Gaeilge Prizes

Two books were launched in the St Mary’s University College Hall on 17th April: An Gasúr a Chaith Pitséamaí Striocacha (The Boy in the Striped Pajamas) and Is mise David (I am David), both works translated by Padaí de Bléine.

Seán Ó Coinn launched the books, and he spoke highly of their content and of the translations.

Seán Mac Nia from CEA was also present to outline the project in which he is involved (with CEA) to an audience of students and lecturers.

On the same occasion Seán Ó Coinn presented cheques on behalf of Foras na Gaeilge to St Mary’s students: the best in each year group and those who made the most progress in that year. The members of the St Mary’s Irish department are grateful to Foras na Gaeilge for this funding, which greatly motivates the students.
