Also, at the event, the President of NUI Galway, Professor Ciarán Ó hÓgartaigh, launched ‘Duais Aitheantais Pheadair Uí Fhlatharta’ on behalf of Bord Stiúrtha Ghaillimh le Gaeilge in association with ‘Fiontar & Scoil na Gaeilge’, DCU. Peadar was the first Cathaoirleach and funding member of Gaillimh le Gaeilge and he laid down the foundation for the growth and success of the organisation.
A beautiful piece of sculpture was especially designed by the renowned artist Pádraic Reaney, a good friend of Peadar. It will be presented to a person or an organisation who have made a great effort to use the Irish language but who are not involved primarily involved with the work of Gaillimh le Gaeilge or indeed Gradam Sheosaimh Uí Ógartaigh. Bord Stiúrtha Ghaillimh le Gaeilge will choose the nominees and it will be presented by Minister of State, Seán Kyne TD, for the first time at the presentation of Gradam Sheosaimh Uí Ógartaigh 2018 on the 24th of May.
