Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Sheehan calls for support for Irish language protest

7 February, 2017 - by Pat Sheehan

Sinn Féin's Pat Sheehan has called on people to take part in a protest supporting legal action in Belfast tomorrow morning calling for the implementation of an Irish language strategy. 

Mr Sheehan said; 

"There is considerable anger in the Irish language community about the DUP’s lack of respect for the Irish language. 

"The DUP have continually shown disrespect to the Irish language and identity and have held up progress on both an Irish language strategy and an  Irish language act. 

"Sinn Féin supports tomorrow’s action in the courts and we will be outside Laganside Court protesting with other Irish language activists. 

"The Irish language threatens no one and is for everyone in our society. 

"I am calling on as many people to come along and take part in tomorrow's protest at Laganside Court at 10.30am."
