Léiríonn cúlú Givan neart na tacaíochta d’Acht na Gaeilge


POBAL, the Irish language umbrella group has said that Paul Givan’s reversal of his decision to withdraw funding for Gaeltacht bursaries shows the strength of support for the Irish language Act. Janet Muller, POBAL’s Director said, ‘This is a victory for the children and adults who need these bursaraies to go o the Gaeltacht to study. But it is not enough. The key issue for many years has been protection for Irish through legislation. We have been disappointed during the last ten years that the St Andrews Agreement promise has not been met, and now the current political crisis must be the turning point. Irish speakers are in strength yet again and calling for no return to government without the Irish Language Act. We must not be let down again. ‘
