éirígí Newry have welcomed the erection of additional Irish language street signage in the Derrybeg Terrace area of Newry. derrybeg4The signage was erected following contact between the party and Newry, Mourne and Down council’s Irish Language Department. Commenting on the development éirígí’s Newry spokesperson Stephen Murney explained, “Several weeks ago I contacted the council’s Irish language department with a request to have bilingual street signage erected at this location, and local residents are delighted to see this has now been secured.” Echoing the éirígí representative’s comments, Derrybeg community worker, Anthony Coyle, said, “Although Derrybeg Terrace is a relatively new build. This now means the street signage is in line with the rest of the Derrybeg area which has had street signs ‘as Gaeilge’ for quite a few years.” Murney continued, “I would like to thank council staff for their assistance with this. While this may appear to a relatively minor development, as a party we believe that the Irish language should be promoted at every opportunity.” Stephen added, “On that note I would encourage anyone who would like to see bilingual street signs erected in their area to contact either myself or the Council’s Irish Language department to set the process in motion.”
