Archibald condemns deliberate damage to Irish road signs

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has condemned deliberate damage to Irish language road signs around Park village in Co Derry.

The East Derry MLA said:

“Local people campaigned hard to get these signs and have expressed their understandable annoyance at this wanton destruction: the plastic part of the signs with the road name have been deliberately removed with the Irish language signs being specifically targeted.

“Prior to the original erection of these signs, consultations took place with residents on all the roads and received widespread support.

“There is no excuse for this type of vandalism and it will not be tolerated.

“We would urge anyone with information about the sign removal to bring it to the attention of the PSNI.

“Occurrences like this bring into focus the need for protection of Irish Language rights through Acht na Gaeilge.”
