SINN FÉIN has a record of activism around the Irish language that we can be proud of. We have worked in partnership with many of the Irish-language bodies over many years. Sinn Féin activists, many of them ex-prisoners who learned Irish in jail, have been very supportive of and active in campaigns around Irish-medium schools, businesses and the promotion of the language.

Tuairiscíodh an tseachtain seo caite go raibh an grúdlannaí idirináisiúnta Diageo ar tí fógairt go bhfuil siad chun an ghrúdlann Guinness a dhúnadh síos i mBaile Átha Cliath comh maith le dhá ghrúdlann eile dá gcuid (ceann acu i nDún Dealgan ina ndéantar Harp, agus an ceann eile i gCill Cháinnigh ina ndéantar Smithwicks). Táthar ag rá go dtógfadh Diageo grúdlann nua ar pháirc ghlas i ndeisceart na príomhchathrach ach tá imní ar na fostaithe go gcaillfidh daoine a bpostanna mar gheall ar an athstruchtúrú seo.

THE COMPARISON between Sudanese journalist Sami-al-Haj - who has just been released from Guantanamo Bay after six years, including over a year on an excruciating hunger strike - and the BBC journalist, Alan Johnston - held for four months in Gaza - is an interesting example of the Western media's double standards. The British newspaper, The Guardian, published a graphic account of al Haj's incaceration, torture and force-feeding on Monday and, in fairness, did justice to his illegal, barbarous treatment by the US military.
