Community groups that promote the Irish language are being honoured at the annual Glór na nGael ceremony in Belfast today.

Pobail an Droichead from the Ormeau Road in Belfast is due to receive the overall prize at this year's awards, which are being presented at Stormont by Community and Gaeltacht Affairs Minister Eamon O'Cuiv.

Speaking ahead of the ceremony, Mr O'Cuiv said he believed the Irish language was more popular now than at any time in recent years.

He said education through Irish was now available in every county in Ireland, while surveys have found a high level of interest in the language.
