A Galway student has won a Smedia in the category Iriseoireacht trí Ghaeilge (Raidió) at the National Student Media awards in the Aviva Stadium.

Amy Coy, from Loughrea, is in her final year at NUI Galway where she is studying Cumarsáid (media through Irish).

After winning the prestigious Smedia award, Amy said that deciding to study Cumarsáid was the best decision she has ever made.

She neither attended a primary or secondary Gaelscoil, but she loved Irish growing up.

Last year, she completed an internship with TG4.
