Sinn Féin pledges support for Irish language strategy and Irish in the Dáil at special ceremony
Sinn Féin TDs and Senators have today been presented with the Irish-language symbol An Fáinne at Leinster House.
The presentation was made by Conradh na Gaeilge to mark the efforts being made by the party to promote the Leinster in the Dáil and Seanad.
Senator Trevor Ó Clochartaigh, Sinn Féin spokesperson on Irish-language and
Gaeltacht affairs thanked Conradh na Gaeilge for the presentation and reaffirmed Sinn Féin’s commitment to the language:
"We in Sinn Féin are fully committed to the Irish language and we are determined to encourage more members of the Oireachtas to speak Irish in both the Dáil and in the Seanad in future, and indeed that there will also be an increase in general in media coverage through Irish of the country's affairs.
“I wish to thank Conradh nas Gaeilhe for this unique presentation and commend them in their work on behalf of the language.
