Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Welcome for Irish language consultation

10 February, 2015 - by Rosie McCorley

Sinn Féin MLA Rosie McCorley has said that the consultation launched by the DCAL Minister Carál Ní Chuilín is an opportunity for Irish language enthusiasts to help shape Acht Na Gaeilge.

 Ms. McCorley stated,

 “The consultation being launched today by the Culture Minister Carál Ni Chuilín is an opportunity for people to help shape Acht na Gaeilge.

 “The Irish language is a living language with more and more people communicating through the medium of Irish and these people have a right to conduct all their business through Irish. 

 “Acht na Gaeilge is a commitment under the St Andrews Agreement and will help bring equality to those who use the language on a daily basis including legal rights.

 “The use of the language is a threat to no one and people should embrace diversity by engaging with the consultation which will last for twelve weeks.”

 “The consultation can be accessed on and I would urge people to make a submission before the 12 week consultation period ends.”
