Irish Language is for everyone - Ní Chuilín

Irish Language is for everyone - Ní Chuilín

Culture Minister Carál Ní Chuilín has reiterated that the Irish Language is for everyone.

The Minister spoke after a member of the Orange Order suggested Protestants should not learn the language. The Minister said: “It is perhaps a sign of how inclusive the Irish Language is today that people from all communities have refuted these remarks. “In 2014, Irish does not belong to a single person or one community, it belongs to us all. We use it every day in surnames and place names, and in the many words which have Irish roots. This continues a shared tradition which can be traced back through history. “The Irish Language has been part of the fabric of our society for centuries. But it is lighting up the path to our shared future. “As part of the Líofa campaign, thousands of people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities are learning Irish. They do so for many reasons – for the joy of learning, as an academic exercise, to understand our history and culture or because their friends and family can speak Irish. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of these people; each has their own story on the journey to fluency.

“They, in common with learners across the globe, deserve our praise and support.”
