Sinn Féin - On Your Side

No further excuses can be accepted on Cultúrlann - Ó Muilleoir

7 December, 2017 - by Máirtín Ó Muilleoir

Speaking after meeting Department of the Communities offices in Belfast, alongside representatives of Irish language arts centre Cultúrlann McAdam-Ó Fiaich and vocational training programme Acadamh Oiliúna na Gaeilge, Sinn Féin MLA Máirtin Ó Muilleoir said:

“The dogs in the street know the DUP was opposed to these Irish language projects when in office but the party is no longer in power and it’s past time that we had action to meet the needs of both these groups which are serving the fast-growing Irish language community.

“It is clearly in the public interest that Cultúrlann and Acadamh should own their own bases and I am pleased that officials have agreed to review refreshed business cases for both projects. But now is the time to move swiftly. The time for excuses is long past."
