18 April, 2016 - by Declan Kearney

Sinn Féin National Chairperson Declan Kearney said today Sinn Féin will be supporting the campaign #GaelVóta.

Mr Kearney announced that the party would be supporting measures published by Conradh na Gaeilge recently regarding additional funding for the language and the call for Ministers in government who are sympathetic to the Irish Language.

Mr Kearney said,

"We recognise the importance of language rights and of progress for those communities which have Gaeilge at their centre.

"We support the Irish Language Community and the development of the resources that are required to ensure proper and fair provision.

"It is important, as we move forward, that all of us who support equality and the implementation of an Irish Language Act work to together to strengthen the campaign.

"Conradh na Gaeilge is to be commended for the launching #GaelVóta and I am happy to say Sinn Féin will be supporting the campaign measures."
