Cllr Chris Andrews calls for Gaelcholáiste development as part of #Gaelcholáiste4all campaign

1 October, 2019

Sinn Féin Dublin Bay South Councillor Chris Andrews has called for a Gaelcholáiste to be developed in Harold's Cross on the old Greyhound Track as part of the campaign #Gaelcholáiste4All.

Sinn Féin is committed to the expansion and enrichment of Irish Medium Education across the island and this campaign is welcomed as it coincides with the #Gaeilge4All Campaign that was launched ón Monday.

Councillor Andrews said,

“As a parent who's two daughters went through Gaeloideachas, I would like to see other families have that opportunity.

“The importance and benefits of Irish Medium Education are widely known and accepted.

“In a fast-changing world, holding onto our language and culture is important. Bilingualism also provides great platform to learn other languages.

“The new school in Harold's Cross should be a Gaelscoil and would be a great addition to a flourishing Irish Language community with 3 Bunscoils already in the catchment area.213

“Tacaíonn Sinn Féin leis an bhfeachtas seo agus iarrann muid ar thuistí cuidiú lena gcuid páistí vóta a chaitheamh ar son na Gaeilge agus an Córas Pátrúnachta.

“We are encouraging parents to vote for Irish and the Córas Patrúnachta at this link: ”
