POBAL – protest shows strength of support for Irish Language Act

POBAL, the Irish language umbrella group has said that today’s protest against cuts to Irish language bursaries in Belfast outside the Department for Communities shows the strength of support for the Irish language Act. Janet Muller, POBAL’s Director said, ‘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 out in strength yet again and calling for no return to government without the Irish Language Act. We must not be let down again. ‘
