“While there is much more to do to ensure language equality, I am pleased that my department is delivering and building on progress. 

“From today, Irish will also now be displayed with English on on-board destination messaging on Glider services operating from Millfield to McKinstry Road and at the Colin Connect Hub. 

“My Department and Translink have worked closely with local stakeholders Forbairt Feirste in bringing this work forward.

“And I am convinced this will be very much welcomed by the local community. 

 

 

“This important step ties in with the commitments to the Irish language in New Decade, New Approach but it is just a first step.

“I also look forward to introducing more Irish signage both inside and outside of our public transport vehicles in partnership with Translink and the local community.

“As I have outlined since coming to office, one of my priorities in government will be to ensure equality is at the heart of all that we do.

She added, “While there is still much more work to be done, today marks an important milestone in this process.”
