On this issue, I totally agree with President Higgins. Our native language is our most distinctive cultural marker. We should be facilitating every desire to speak it rather than cribbing about the money spent on it. If it was any other minority,there'd be outrage at the attitudes expressed about Irish and Irish speakers.
Am I kicking at a closed door here? Look at the attitude towards the language shown by mods here on Politics.ie!
