Welcome for bi-lingual signage consultation - Sheehan

11 January, 2011

Sinn Féin MLA for West Belfast and Language spokesperson Pat Sheehan has welcomed the launch of a draft consultation process into bi-lingual road signage.

Speaking earlier Mr Sheehan said:

“This is a welcome development and one that will enable local councils to erect signage in Irish or Ulster Scots.

“It is another step in the right direction in meeting the Executive commitments under the European Charter for the protection of minority languages and I am glad the the Regional Development Minister has brought this forward for discussion.

“Certainly this is an excellent opportunity for people to express their ideas on how these proposals would be best implemented.”
