Conemara native Barbara Nic Dhonnacha has taken home a prestigious national radio award this week for her work in Irish Language broadcasting.
She was awarded the ‘Best Irish Language Show on a Commercial Station’ on Wednesday evening at the Oireachtas Communications Awards Ceremony in Killarney.
“Is mór an onóir aitheantas a fháil ag Oireachtas na Gaeilge agus táim buíoch ó chroí as an gradam seo a bronnadh orm.,” Barbara said.
“It’s a huge honour to receive recognition at the Oireachtas na Gaeilge awards, everyone working through Irish in media in Ireland wants to be shortlisted here. I’m delighted to win this award doing what I love – Irish language radio.”
The weekly show “Cad ‘Déarfá le Gaillimh” airs Sundays from 6-7pm on Galway Bay FM.
Barbara joined the team earlier this year and also presents and produces the weekday drivetime show “On The Move” which airs 3pm-7pm Monday
