Joe Mc Donagh Foundation/Fondireacht Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha

December 03, 2020

The Joe Mc Donagh Foundation/Fondúireacht Sheosaimh Mhic Dhonncha was established in 2016. This

scheme, a partnership between the GAA and Glór na nGael, gives clubs the opportunity to use Irish in an

enjoyable and practical way. Its aim is to weave the Irish language into all the GAA’s activities, and so to

awaken a sense of pride in all aspects of the Gaelic culture and language. The Foundation gives direction

and ideas to build on good work that has already been done within the club. Medals are awarded to

clubs for various levels of achievement in promotion of the Irish language and culture.

Is cúis mór áthais dúinn a insint daoibh go bhfuil bonn umha buaite again i mbliana. Castlebar Mitchels

are delighted and proud to have, this year, been awarded a bronze medal by the Joe Mc Donagh

Foundation for their activities in these areas. The medal is a noted sign of achievement and recognition

for the club’s continued work and progress. We will strive now to attain the next level, silver medal

award, for the club. Members who have an interest in the Irish language and cultural activities are

invited to join our group. There is no need to be fluent in Irish, as our activities are conducted bi-

lingually and in a social, relaxed manner. There will be no pressure on anyone to do anything! Just come

and enjoy meeting like-minded people.

For more information, contact our Cultural Officer.

Déanfaimid ár ndícheall anois tuilleadh céimeanna chun tosaigh a thabhairt sna blianta amach

romhainn, agus bonn airgid a ghnóthú. Tugaimid cuireadh anois daoibh páirt a ghlacadh san iarracht

seo. Tar isteach agus bainfidh sibh taitneamh as. ‘Ní neart go cur le chéile.’
