Four Kerry businesses have received gold awards in this year’s GRADAIM Gnó na hÉireann.
At an event in Croke Park, a total of 146 businesses from across the country were presented with Irish business awards by Glór na nGael.
Awards are granted for achieving a certain standard in the use of Irish across three areas - signage, branding and marketing, and service in Irish.
Twenty-six (26) businesses achieved a gold award in all three areas, including four from Kerry - Walsh's Pharmacy, Beatha, and An Capall Dubh, all from Dingle, and Forbairt na Dromoda Teo in South Kerry.
Ruairí Ó hÓgáin from Dingle was presented with a Young Entrepreneur of the Year award, for his flair for entrepreneurship and passion for the Irish language.
