Gradam Sheosaimh Uí Ógartaigh 2020

On the 6th of November, with its biggest audience yet of 45,000 listeners, The Kings Head  was announced by the Deputy Mayor of the City of Galway, Cllr. Colette Connolly live on Galway Talks, Galway Bay FM, as the overall winner of Galway’s bilingual business award –  Gradam Sheosaimh Uí Ógartaigh for 2020.

It is the longest running award of its kind in Ireland, organised by Gaillimh le Gaeilge, in partnership with the Galway Advertiser and with support from TG4 and the Galway Chamber. The Gradam had to reinvent itself and move to a new Autumn schedule due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Following 27 entries, 11 finalists, 4 categories and 2 rounds of judging, The Kings Head, was named as the winner of the ‘Tourism & Hospitality’ Category, sponsored by Fáilte Ireland which was announced on the 5th of November by the Mayor of the City of Galway Cllr. Mike Cubbard on Galway Bay FM and they went on to scoop the overall award!
