TEG Certificates were presented to Kerry County Council staff members at a presentation ceremony on Tuesday 13 December 2016. Kerry County Council are committed to creating and developing the opportunity for the people of Kerry to conduct their business with the Council in either official language of the State.
Speaking through Irish, Kerry County Council’s Chief Executive Officer, Moira Murrell said at the ceremony “The Irish language and our Gaeltacht areas are important jewels in the Kingdom of Kerry, a well spring for the Irish people and our Diaspora worldwide, that enhances our quality of life, our pride of place and our county as a tourist destination. As the Local Authority, we have an important role in Kerry County Council to create a common vision for the promotion and development of our culture and national language for the benefit of all”.
Aisling Ní Bheacháin from Maynooth University said “Kerry County Council are to be commended for their efforts over recent years to support and ensure that Council staff are suitably trained and enabled to provide services through Irish for the people of Kerry” as she presented 19 certificates at Beginner and Lower-Intermediate levels.
