5 April, 2017 - by Pat Sheehan

Sinn Féin's Pat Sheehan has called on people to take part in a protest against the withdrawal of funding to Irish Medium youth providers.

Mr Sheehan said:

“This protest has been organised in response to the denial of funding to Irish Medium youth providers.

“This is another attack on the Irish language and proves once again the need for an Irish language act.

"Sinn Féin supports tomorrow’s action organised by Glór na Móna outside the Education Authority on Academy Street protesting against the cuts. 

"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 Education Authority on Academy Street at 3.30pm.”
