New Government Gaeltacht Legislation

The Goverment is looking to introduce legislation that provides a new definition of constitutes a Gaeltacht area. This is part of a wider strategy document on the Irish language, to be published later today. You can read more about this here.

Whilst this does not directly impact on the Gaelscoil, it is reassuring that the draft strategy does say that there will continue to be a senior minister with responsibility for the Irish language. I believe the current such minister is  John Curran T.D. and that we should include his department in any official canvassing efforts for the permanent school building.
