    Default Irish Language Act. Tá bron orm

    Sorry to post here as bearla but have not got good enough Irish.

    As many of you may or may not know that with the St Andrews Agreement there was provision for an Irish language act in the 6 counties. HOWEVER the Loyalist/Unionist people have decided to try and scupper this as they do not want Irish to grow.

    As a result of the Loyalist/Unionist people organising through the Orange Order there has been quite a large anti-Irish campaign got going to stop the Act. I am asking that any of you who live in the 6 counties or know some one who does pm me as I have draft letters here which can be altered slightly and can be emailed to the relevant person in order to promote Irish.

    Tá born orm arís for the use of béarla here, tá beagán gaeilge agus Go raibh maith agat in advance. ( I may not have good Irish but am having my kids schooled in Irish medium education and I do what ever I can to promote my language).

    I gcead duit, a raiff, agus nílim ag ceasacht ort, ach tá sé níos tabhachtaí go labharfása an Ghaeilge, agus daoine mar leat, ná Acht rialtais ab chuma ann nó as ag an daoine

    Is fearr leis an rialtas béalghrá is maisiúcháin a dhéanamh don teanga in áit rud ar bith tathagach taithneascach.

    Labhrann daoine teanga agus ní thuig le rialtas teanga a chur i mbéal an phobail ina nainneoin

    Nílim deimhneach de an bhfuilir ag teacht salach ar a ndúirt mé nó ar aon tuairim leis.

    Ní ceart do rialtas ar bith sairsingiú ar dhuine teanga a labhairt nuair nach mian leis, ach ba chóir dóibh ag an am céanna é a éascú don té ar mian leis, is spreagadh dóibh siúd a bhfuil gaeilge ar a dtoil acu cheana féin, leanúint orthu á labhairt, is a toirbhirt ar an nglúin a leanann iad.

    The Irish Language Act in the Republic has only been active since 2003. So - Give it time in NI.

    I am sure that the act will happen in NI.

    That said, the Irish Language is not been actively pushed in local government. Has anybody gone into a public office using the language?

    What are your experiences?

    The act does allow people to conduct business in Irish. Fair play to O Cuiv bringing it in. It was about time.
    When i think of the people who vote for SF/IRA, i think of Germany in 1933.
