Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture has been awarded the European Commission's Melina Mercouri prize of €1.5 million.

The European Commission announced the award of the prestigious prize yesterday evening, and the Minister for Culture, Heritage & the Gaeltacht Josepha Madigan says it's a wonderful endorsement of the work by the team at Galway 2020 in developing a strong European-focussed programme for the European Capital of Culture in Galway next year.

The Galway 2020 programme will see over 1900 events across 154 projects, with the opening ceremony set to take place in February.
