Sinn Féin Dublin Bay South Councillor Chris Andrews has called for a Gaelcholáiste to be developed in Harold’s Cross on the old Greyhound Track as part of the campaign #Gaelcholáiste4All.
Sinn Féin is committed to the expansion and enrichment of Irish Medium Education across the island and this campaign is welcomed as it coincides with the #Gaeilge4All Campaign that was launched ón Monday.
Councillor Andrews said,
“As a parent who’s two daughters went through Gaeloideachas, I would like to see other families have that opportunity.
“The importance and benefits of Irish Medium Education are widely known and accepted.
“In a fast-changing world, holding onto our language and culture is important. Bilingualism also provides great platform to learn other languages.
“The new school in Harold’s Cross should be a Gaelscoil and would be a great addition to a flourishing Irish Language community with 3 Bunscoils already in the catchment area.213
“Tacaíonn Sinn Féin leis an bhfeachtas seo agus iarrann muid ar thuistí cuidiú lena gcuid páistí vóta a chaitheamh ar son na Gaeilge agus an Córas Pátrúnachta.
“We are encouraging parents to vote for Irish and the Córas Patrúnachta at this link: http://gaelscoil4all.ie/dublin-6-d6w/?fbclid=IwAR1rMOsPIAzvWU3nxuBaqJ725z-O-hsisU36BuoCemQKyu1AEHbsDgKDIFU ”
