16 March, 2017 - by Máirtín Ó Muilleoir

Sinn Féin MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir has called for the release of all information relating to the controversial decision to cut the Líofa Gaeltacht bursary scheme. 

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir said: 

"The controversial decision by former DUP minister Paul Givan to cut the Líofa Gaeltacht bursary scheme just before Christmas caused widespread anger among the Irish language community. 

"It was the wrong decision, a mean-spirited decision, and I welcome the fact that it was later reversed. 

"No credible explanation was given for the decision by the then minister so the public are entitled know what motivated it. 

"All information and correspondence relating to the decision should be released and put into the public domain."
