Executive needs to implement Irish language act now
Sinn Féin MLA Rosie McCorley has welcomed the publication of the consultation on the Irish Language.
Ms McCorley said,
“The publication of the consultation highlights the fact that the vast majority of people responding were in favour of an Irish Language Act.
“95% of those who responded were in favour of an Irish Language Act. Clearly the public wants to move forward on this issue.
“The Irish language belongs to everyone and threatens no one. So it is time those people who use the language in their everyday life have their rights enshrined in legislation.
“The Executive and the Assembly should take note of the consultation and deliver an Irish Language Act now.”
