Scoláireachtaí Gaeltachta 2018 – There was a large number of applicants for the Gaeltacht grants offered by Coiste Contae Liatroma. This year, Leitrim County Board GAA was pleased to receive support from Leitrim County Council. This allowed the Board to increase the number of grants made. Grants of between €200 and €400 were awarded to the winners.

Is deas a fheiceáil go bhfuil an méid sin daoine óga ag dul go dtí an Ghaeltacht chun a gcuid Ghaeilge a fheabhsú. Buíochas do na buachaillí agus na cailíní go léir a chuir isteach ar na scoláireachtaí agus comhghairdeas do na buaiteoirí. Buíochas freisin do Choláiste na bhFiann agus Coláiste Ó Direáin a thug páirt-scoláireachtaí dúinn.
