Foras Na Gaeilge Motion Too Premature

23 May, 2012 - by Cathal Ó hOisín


Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Ó hOisín has said that the motion on funding of Foras Na Gaeilge was premature and that the full consultation needs to be printed before making important decisions.

 Mr Ó hOisín said,

 “As an Irish language activist I recognise the concern about the future funding of the Irish language sector but I feel that this motion was premature.

“As previous consultations have caused confusion the Minister has moved to remove the chaos with the present process.  I would urge people to wait until the publication of the report before deciding on how we proceed.

 “I look forward to continuing to work with the various Irish language groups to ensure that the language is properly funded and allowed to flourish.”
