    Darren note that the motion refers to "new residential developments" - the linguistically challenged should be safe for a few years then.

    No - there were beatings, not learning.

    I wouldn't mind at all if it was pleasant on the ear. Maybe they can find a way to make it less guttural and harsh sounding like German, Arabic or Klingon.

    Hijacking a thread? S, what you're saying is that unless someone is here to backslap, they're not allowed to contribute their POV on an open forum?

    It might be positive news for you Darren, but it ain't to me. All it is to me is another part of nationalist Ireland stilling ploughing ahead and creating more resentment for the language. whats' the plan? Banning English eventually?? Far fetched I know, but if someone told me 20 years ago that it'd be law that all new residential areas had to be named in Irish by law and English names were hereby illegal I'd have laughed them off as some De Valera throw back..yet here we are.

    I did until secondary school and then got an exemption from it. But if I go by the experience of classmates, even if I'd been there I'd know as much as I do today.

    Even if only one estate or apartment block gets built in the next few years it will be great, that is with the added hope that the policy will continue for the long-term.
