Fáilte roimh cinneadh an Rialtais ar Stadas na Gaeilge san AE

14 July, 2004


Chuir Ceannaire Dála Shinn Féin Caoimhghin Ó Caoláin fáilte roimh cinneadh an Rilatais chun iarratas a chur isteach do stadas oifigiúl oibre don Ghaeilge san Aontas Eorpach. Dúirt an Teachta Ó Caoláin:

Cuirim fáilte roimh cinneadh seo an Rialtais inniu. Toradh maith ar obair dian a rinne an-chuid daoine agus tá comhghairdeas ar leith ag dul ach go háirithe do Fheachtas Stadas. Chuir siad an ceist seo go hard ar an gclár polaitiúil agus fuair siad tacaiocht ar bhonn leathan polaitiúil. Tá súil agam anois go dtiocfaidh an freagra dearfach ón AE gan mhoill. Céim ar aghaidh don Ghaeilge a bheidh ann."

Government decision on EU status for Irish welcomed

Sinn Féin Dáil leader Caoimhghin Ó Caoláin TD has welcomed the decision of the Cabinet today to apply for official working status for the Irish language in the EU. Deputy Ó Caoláin said:

"I welcome today's Government decision. It is a very good result for the determined efforts of many people and many congratulations are due especially to the Stadas campaign. They placed this issue high on the political agenda and won support on a wide political basis. I hope a positive response comes from the EU without delay. This will be a significant step forward for the Irish language."ENDS
