25 June, 2014 - by Rosaleen McCorley

Sinn Féin Irish language spokesperson Rosie McCorley said that Education Minister John O’Dowd has again shown his commitment to Irish medium education by announcing funding for Scoil an Droichid and Gaelscoil na gCrann.

 Rosie McCorley said,

 “As more and more parents decide to educate their children through the medium of Irish it is important these children have proper facilities in which to learn and develop.

 “Education Minister John O’Dowd has constantly shown his commitment to the Irish medium sector and his announcement is the latest in a series of investments in Gaelscoileanna across the North.

 “His announcement will ensure both these schools can not only develop modern facilities in which to educate our children but will also allow more parents the opportunity to educate their children through the medium of Irish.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
