Large crowds to descend upon Dublin this Saturday
It won’t be long now until communities and groups from all around the country make their way to Dublin for Lá Mór na Gaeilge.
The march is taking place to highlight the rights of the Irish-speaking and Gaeltacht communities and will take place on Saturday, 15 February 2014. The rally will leave the Garden of Remembrance, Parnell Square, at 2.00pm and the aim of the campaign is to show that the Government’s approach to Irish language affairs is in breach of Irish speakers’ language rights.
The campaign was established following the announcement by the Language Commissioner, Seán Ó Cuirreáin in December that he would be resigning as a result of the Government’s failure to implement language legislation at the level of the State.
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:
Buses will travel to Dublin from Conamara, Donegal, Armagh, Leitrim, Cork, Kildare, Belfast, Meath, Tyrone and Derry.
The march will be a lively event which will celebrate Irish as a thriving spoken language and Seo Linn, members of Kila and Na Fíréin will close the say’s events.
