Sibéal is one of five recipients of new arts awards to commemorate Countess Markievicz.

Sibéal Davitt has been a contemporary and sean nós dancer for 10 years and said she is going to use the money to create a project devised through dance, movement and theatre about the teaching and learning of Irish in Ireland.

I’m collaborating with the actor Caitríona Ní­ Mhurchú and this award will give us the space and time to ask really important questions and to look at the Irish language critically.
