After an audit of the previous website, Bord Stiúrtha Ghaillimh le Gaeilge decided to redevelop it in order to maximise the use of new technologies that are now available.
At the press event, Gaillimh le Gaeilge also launched their redesigned website (www.gleg.ie) developed by Armour, to coincide with Gradam 2018.
Gaillimh le Gaeilge would like to thank the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht for the special funding that they provided for the redesign of the site – Go raibh míle maith agaibh.
