9 December, 2016 - by Niall Ó Donnghaile


Sinn Féin Seanadóir Niall Ó Donnghaile has met with Conradh na Gaeilge to discuss the rights of the Irish language community. 

Speaking after attending a Conradh na Gaeilge conference, Seanadóir Ó Donnghaile said; 

"The issue of rights for Irish speakers is of huge concern to everyone in the Irish language community. 

"As part of a Sinn Féin delegation, I attended a Conradh na Gaeilge conference which discussed the concerns of Irish speakers and what could be done to further their rights. 

"We reiterated our commitment to securing an Irish Language Act and discussed a range of possibilities. These included the suggestion that Irish speakers should be included in Section 75 equality legislation, and the campaign to have court cases heard through Irish. 

"Sinn Féin will continue  to support and champion the rights of the Irish language community."
