March for An Ghaeilge

March in the capital to support the rights of the Irish-speaking and Gaeltacht communities


Following on from a public meeting organised at the beginning of the month by Conradh na Gaeilge, a strong campaign for the Irish language will begin with a march in Dublin on Saturday, 15 February 2014.

 

According the to campaign organisers: “This campaign has been inspired by, and we have been motivated to seek the support of the wider community throughout the island for our rights following:

  • the announcement by Seán Ó Cuirreáin, the Language Commissioner, that he is to resign on the 24th February 2014 because of a lack of Government support in the south for the language rights of the Irish language and Gaeltacht community
  • the report by the Council of Europe that the promotion and development of the Irish language in the north is being blocked by hostile attitudes in Stormont, and a lack of support for its use in the courts and in education”.

The march will begin at the Garden of Remembrance on Parnell Square at 2.00pm. 

Kila, Seo Linn and Na Fíréin will perform on the day and all members of the public are welcome to take part.
