McElduff concerned about Foras na Gaeilge funding reductions

28 September, 2016 - by Barry McElduff


Sinn Féin MLA Barry McElduff has requested an urgent meeting with Foras na Gaeilge to discuss potential reductions in funding for Irish language centres in Belfast and Derry. 

Mr McElduff said; 

"Reports that Foras na Gaeilge funding could be reduced for Cultúrlann MacAdam Ó Fiach in Belfast and Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin in Derry are very concerning. 

"Both of these groups carry out excellent work and are helping the continued growth and development of the Irish language in Belfast and Derry. 

"No doubt this will create uncertainty and anxiety among staff at both Irish language centres. 

"I will be seeking an urgent meeting with Foras na Gaeilge to discuss funding and the impact for both of these organisations."
