Easpa suime an Rialtais i leith chur chun cinn na Gaeilge san Eoraip

25 October 2007

Tá a fhios agam go bhfuil mé tar éis dearcadh an rialtais i leith na Gaeilge a chur faoi scian sa cholún seo le déanaí, ach i ndáiríre bhí sé tuillte acu. Ina ainneoin seo áfach, tháinig mé ar phíosa ar an idirlíon le linn na seachtaine agus b'éigean dom solas níos láidre a lonrú air. Go bunúsach an fhadhb an tráth seo ná go bhfuil rialtas na 26 contae ag iarraidh tábhacht agus úsáid na Gaeilge san Aontas na hEorapa (AE) a ídiú go mór. De réir na tuairisce, ar Bhlog na Gaeilge, na príomhfhadhbanna atá ann faoi láthair ná gramadach neamhoiriúnach agus easpa infheistíochta d'aistritheoirí. Tá mo thuairim féin ag neartú nach bhfuil suim ar bith i gcur chun cinn agus fás na Gaeilge ar an oileán seo. Free article
