Slán go fóill Edwin
Speaking following the announcement of Gregory Campbell as the new Six County Culture Minister, Sinn Féin Culture spokesperson Francie Brolly MLA has said,
"Irish speakers will shed no tears at Edwin Poot's departure.
"His lack of care for the Irish language was astonishing.
"Edwin Poots missed the opportunity to be long sighted on many issues.
"Gregory Campbell must now have a mature approach in his new position, start with a clean slate and show respect for multiculturalism and multilingualism.
"Sinn Féin will be seeking an urgent meeting with the new minister on a range of issues such as the multi-sports stadium, the arts, the Irish language broadcast fund and Acht na Gaeilge.
"Go n-éirí an bóthar le Gregory", arsa an t-Uasal Brolly." Críoch
