Call for Ó Cuív to secure future of Foinse
Senator Doherty said:
“The future of our last Irish language paper is under threat. The Minister needs to step up and ensure the future of this vital language medium is guaranteed. If operating costs for the paper are the issue then they simply need to be resolved. The Minister needs to take a hands on approach with the sole objective of working with the paper to ensure that it remains in production.
“Sinn Féin representatives attending the Foras na Gaeilge meeting will also be calling for Irish Language Strategic Plan 2028 to be delivered across the 32 counties. This is Sinn Féin’s vision for Plan 2028. The Minister and his government must make best use of Foras na Gaeilge as a 32 county organisation to ensure that the Irish language community from across the island be included in this initiative.”
