Dátheangachas den Scoth sa Ghnó /Bilingual Excellence in Business
The All-island Q-Mharc Gnó le Gaeilge award system gives recognition to business organisations who evaluate, develop and capitalise on the use of Irish as an additional business and marketing tool throughout the island of Ireland. Q-Mharc Gnó le Gaeilge demonstrates awareness and a commitment to bilingualism in business and culture through language, enhancing indigenous characteristics or ‘Irishness’. As well as that, it shows marketing leadership in the provision of innovative customer service.
Foras na Gaeilge Chairperson, Pól Ó Gallchóir, “Today’s event is a big day for the business sector and for bilingualism on an international level as Q-Mharc Gnó le Gaeilge is the first official award scheme throughout the world which gives recognition to excellence in bilingualism in business. I commend the businesses who have been awarded Q-Mharc Gnó le Gaeilge today; these businesses are excellent examples of the benefits associated with providing a bilingual service, a service which will be of benefit to their own business as well as their customers in the years ahead.”
Mac Domhnaill Dental is delighted to have been awarded the Q Mharc award for Excellence in Bilingualism in Business. We are honoured to be one of only seven Irish businesses to have received the award from Foras na Gaeilge in Croke Park on Thursday March 8th. We look forward to offering all our services as Gaeilge and in English to all our patients.
