The world of online Irish language media continues to grow with the launch today of Meon Eile.

This multimedia web platform, which is funded by the Irish Language Broadcast Fund, will offer a unique insight into life in Northern Ireland and further afield with regular video reports and stories on a wide range of topics, from current affairs and sport, to music, cultural events and Irish language arts.

“In today’s world people are used to accessing online content that is of interest to them quickly and easily,” said Sinéad Ingoldsby, Meon Eile Producer.

“Meon Eile will provide the Irish language community with high-quality videos and interesting stories on a user-friendly site.

“Interaction between Irish speakers online is becoming increasingly vibrant and we in Meon Eile hope to add to this important conversation.”

While a dedicated team of video journalists, editors and writers will produce most of Meon Eile’s content, the site will also give members of the community an opportunity to take part in the service.

“The Irish language community has an abundance of talent and ideas and we welcome anybody who would like to add to the site in any way,” said Sinéad.
