The Sinn Féin Assembly Team have attended a two day Irish language course (Mon -Tues 9-10 July) at Stormont this week. Speaking after this successful venture Roinn an Chultúir chairperson, Séanna Breathnach said,
"The response has been immense! This two day course follows a successful one week Irish language course undertaken by the European Department in Donegal recently. In the Assembly we auger to have a second course in August to meet the demand and to make the "Gaelú Shinn Féin" policy a reality."
"We, in Roinn an Chultúir/ SF Culture Department shall be rolling out this process to Leinster House and local councils "gan mhoill" without delay."
"It is heartening to see so many people studying the language in the Assemblywhich is another site of struggle, and also at a time when the campaign for an Irish language Act is to the fore by Sinn Féin."
