Warning: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'UTC' for 'GMT/0.0/no DST' instead in /var/www/vhosts/slovobooks.com/httpdocs/irishsfnews/bblog/bBlog_plugins/modifier.date_format.php on line 26

The award of €10,000, which is sponsored by Bord na Leabhar Gaeilge, was announced by Minister Éamon Ó Cuív and presented by playwright Brian Friel at a special ceremony in the City Hotel, Derry yesterday. The event, which formed part of the annual Oireachtas na Gaeilge festival, was broadcast live by Raidió na Gaeltachta.
The winning title is a retelling in contemporary graphic novel form of the Táin Bó Cuailgne, the famous cattle-raid on Ulster. The shortlisted books were chosen for their content, design, layout, including text and illustrations, standard of printing and how they meet the needs of their target audience. In total 16 titles were entered in the Young People’s Competition and reduced to a shortlist of 3.
