Irish Language Act has widespread support – McGuigan

Speaking after attending the Lá Dearg march in Belfast on Saturday the North Antrim MLA said:

“The large turn out at today’s march shows the strength of support there is for an Irish Language Act.

“This was a fantastic and vibrant demonstration of the importance people place on proper protection of the Irish Language here in the North of Ireland. It was fantastic to see people young and old talking, chanting and singing as Gaeilge.

“There is a large Irish speaking community across North Antrim from Ballymena to Ballycastle and the Glens and I met many of them on this demonstration.”

“The protection of Irish Language rights should be seen as a positive across all communities. Recent polls tell us that well over 50% people here support an Act from all political backgrounds. Our language and Culture belongs to all.”
