Irish groups urged to apply to new funding bodies

Foyle Sinn Féin MLA Raymond McCartney has encouraged Irish language groups in Derry to apply to be part of new all-Ireland funding structures.

“I have great confidence in the northern-based Irish language groups who have been to the forefront of the revival in Gaeilge. Some of the groups expressed concerns about their future under the new arrangements. We have received assurances that there are no predetermined outcomes to the make up of the all-Ireland structures,” he said.
