NEWS FROM THE CELTIC LEAGUE
Several items of Irish sport, music and folklore are to be considered for special UNESCO recognition and protection. Hurling, the Uilleann Pipes and the Irish folklore collection will be under scrutiny by the United Nations body.
The issue will be considered and a decision taken next year.
It is imperative that both the Celtic League and Celtic Congress press for a wider recognition of unique examples of wider Celtic culture and sport across all the Celtic countries.
The Celtic League is uniquely placed to progress such an initiative as the body has itself enjoyed official recognition as a United Nations non governmental organisation (NGO).
