‘Scéal na Gaeilge’ Wins Best Factual Entertainment at Celtic Media Festival
01 May 2013 : By Kevin Cronin
'Scéal na Gaeilge' wins at Celtic Media Festival.
‘Scéal na Gaeilge’ - the Story of Irish - the two part IFTA nominated documentary series tracing the journey of the Irish language from biblical times to the present day was named Best Factual Entertainment at this year’s Celtic Media Festival in Swansea.

Presented and written by Alan Titley, directed by Diarmuid Goggins and produced by Ciarán Ó Cofaigh for ROSG, the series combined animation, green screen and location filming to shine a humorous light on the historical and mythological stories behind the Irish language.

Producer Ciarán Ó Cofaigh was delighted at the series' victory on the world stage.

‘It’s great to win a prize at a major international festival like this. In my opinion, we’re obliged to find new ways to present documentary programmes in a visual, energetic and fun way. We believe that we have proven that any subject matter can be presented in an entertaining humorous style to all age groups,’ he said.

The Celtic Media Festival is an annual celebration of film, television, radio and digital media from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany and the Isle of Man – with productions accepted in Irish, Cornish, Breton, Manx, French, and English.

‘Scéal na Gaeilge’ – which was funded by TG4, The BAI, Foras na Gaeilge and ROS – also won the Oireachtas Media Award for best TV series and was IFTA nominated for Best Sound at this year’s ceremony.
