Green Party welcomes five new Gaelscoileanna

BACK

Tá an Comhaontas Glas tar éis fáilte a chur roimh chúig Ghaelscoil nua i mBaile Átha Cliath atá fógartha ag an Aire Oideachais Joe McHugh inniu.

Dúirt urlabhraí Ghaeilge an Chomhaontais Ghlais, an Comhairleoir Peter Kavanagh, atá mar chomhairleoir i Ráth Cúil, Teach Sagart agus an Caisleán Nua, a bheadh mar shuíomh Ghaelscoil nua, “Is aitheantas é seo ar fheachtasaíocht an phobail áitiúil, le tacaíocht ó pháirtithe polaitiúla, eagraíochtaí agus fiú an Comisinéir Teanga. Fáiltím go mór roimh na Gaelscoile nua i mo cheantar, a chomhlíonfaidh éileamh mór sna dúiche seo.”
 
Dár leis an ESRI, tá suas go 23% de thuimitheoirí ag iarraidh a gcuid páistí a sheoladh ar Ghaelscoil, ach níl ach 8% de bhunscoileanna na tíre ina mbunscoileanna.
 
“Tá a fhios go maith againn,” arsa an Caomhánach, “na buntáistí a bhaineann leis an dátheangachas agus an tábhacht a bhaineann leis an nGaeilge mar acmhainn náisúnta don phobal ar fad.”

CRÍOCH

The Green party has welcomed the announcement of 5 new Gaelscoileanna in Dublin, made by Education Minister Joe McHugh today.

Irish Language spokesperson Cllr. Peter Kavanagh, a county councillor for Rathcoole, Newcastle and Saggart, the area one of the new schools will serve, said, “This is an acknowledgement of the campaigning by local parents with support from political parties, organisations and even An Coimisinéir Teanga. This new Gaelscoil will satisfy massive demand and is most welcome.”

According to the ESRI, up to 23% of parents would choose a Gaelscoil education for their children, but only 8% of primary schools are Gaelscoileanna.

“We know well,” said Cllr. Kavanagh, “the benefits of bilingualism and the importance of Irish as a national resource for the entire community.”
