FAREWELL BUT NOT GOODBYE TO SEÁN Ó NEACHTAIN

It was with great disappointment that the Irish language community learned that Seán Ó Neachtain, MEP will not contest the European Parliament elections in June due to health concerns.  Seán gave great support to Comhdháil Náisiúnta na Gaeilge during his time as MEP, especially during the STÁDAS campaign, to achieve official working language status for Irish in the European Union.  

Speaking about Seán Ó Neachtain, Pádraig Mac Criostail, Stiúrthóir of Comhdháil Náisiúnta na Gaeilge said;  “Seán was always an ally, and helped us immensely with the STÁDAS campaign from the very beginning.  Seán only spoke Irish when addressing the parliament, which helped raise the language’s profile on an international basis.  Seán understands the advantages of Irish being an official and working language of the EU and he has worked hard to achieve this.”

“It is a great pity that Seán is not standing for re-election, however we wish both him and his family all the best.”
