Jan End 2017“The Irish language is an integral part of the lives of a growing number of people who use it daily and their rights should be protected.
  “No one has anything to fear from the Irish language or an Irish language act. “The British and Irish governments need to implement the commitment for an Irish language act from the St Andrew’s Agreement and outstanding commitments from other agreements.
  She added, “This is is clear issue of rights and Sinn Féin is standing up for the respect, integrity and equality for all.”
