“Is cinnte go bhfuil an scéim aitheantais seo ar cheann de na beartais is mó agus is tábhachtaí a raibh baint againn leis ó bunaíodh an tseirbhís i 1996. Tá an Ghaeilge, an ceol agus na cluichí dúchasacha fite fuaite le chéile. Is iad cuisle an náisiúin iad agus is ábhar bróid dúinn an Gradam Ceoil. Gura fada buan é agus lucht an cheoil.” Alan Esslemont, Ardstiúrthóir TG4
