Digital opportunities must pave way for roll out of TG4

30 September, 2004

Sinn Féin Culture Spokesperson, East Derry MLA Francie Brolly has welcomed the indication that new digital broadcasting, based in Divis Mountain, will open the way for the roll out of TG4 coverage throughout the Six Counties.

Mr Brolly said:

"The commitment to roll out access to TG4 has been an issue for Sinn Fein every since the Good Friday Agreement was signed. At every discussion we have had with the two governments about their failure to deliver on commitments to Irish language rights Sinn Fein have pressed the governments for action.

"Hopefully the with the extension of digital broadcasting, based at Divis Mountain, the opportunity to deliver full coverage for every household throughout the Six Counties to TG4 will be taken.

"The Irish language community is growing and thriving throughout the Six Counties, particularly in our Irish medium schools and through the rich and diverse Irish culture community." ENDS
