Digital Media Awards
A pioneering Irish-language project won the top award last night at the Digital Media Awards held in Dublin’s Burlington Hotel.

The Irish-language podcast An tImeall won the award for the Best Independent Podcast, and then went on to receive the Grand Prix for the top marks received among the 22 category winners.

The Minister for Communications, Noel Dempsey, presented the award to Conn Ó Muíneacháin from County Clare based company Edgecast Media. Conn launched An tImeall in 2005. It was the first podcast in the Irish language.

An tImeall is an internet radio show. Sound files are published to the website imeall.com and listeners can play them on their computer, or copy them to a mobile MP3 device.
