Sinn Féin MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir has welcomed news that nurture units at two Belfast Irish language schools are to receive funding from the Dept of Education.

The South Belfast MLA said; 

“I have spoken today with the chief executive of Comhairle na Gaelscolaíochta, who met me earlier this  month on this issue, and he tells me schools are delighted that funding will be provided for nurture units at Bunscoil Bheann Mhadagáin and Bunscoil an Droichid. 

“This is great news for both schools. 

"The nurture units will play a hugely beneficial role in the education of children in these schools and as a strong advocate for the Irish medium sector I wish them well in the future."
