IRISH TIMES – Run & Jump triumphs at the Galway Film Fleadh

The awards are in at the 25th Galway Film Fleadh and the main prize — that for Best Irish Feature — went to Steph Green’s Run & Jump. President Michael D Higgins, a longtime supporter of the event, presented a special Galway Hooker award to Miriam Allen, CEO and driving force of the Fleadh. The gong recognises her achievement in helping coax a new festival into one of the essential dates on the cultural calendar. Loud cheers should ring out.
