Respect is a matter for everyone - McElduff

17 January, 2017 - by Barry McElduff

Sinn Fein MLA Barry McElduff said claims that the DUP did not agree to an Irish Language Act are ludicrous.

The party’s Irish Language spokesperson said:

“It is utterly ludicrous for Edwin Poots to suggest that the DUP did not sign up to an Irish Language Act and that it is not a matter for them.

“Respect is a matter for everyone.

“It was part of the terms of the St Andrew’s Agreement. They signed up to that agreement and they have failed to implement it.

“Edwin Poots’ remarks this morning highlight the antipathy of the DUP towards the language and shows that they wish to cherry pick certain elements of the Agreement.

“Acht na Gaeilge is an outstanding issue, previously agreed and well over due.”
