Díomá ar MacManus nach mbeidh lán seirbhísí Gaeilge ag Parlaimint na hEorpa

Dúirt an Feisire Eorpach de chuid Shinn Féin, Chris MacManus, go raibh díomá air nach mbeidh lán seirbhísí Gaeilge ag Parlaimint na hEorpa go dtí 2029 ar a laghad.

Vótáil Parlaimint na hEorpa chun síneadh a chur le riail a fhágann Parlaimint na hEorpa gan lán seirbhísí Gaeilge agus Máltais go dtí deireadh an chéad téarma eile de chuid na Parlaiminte i 2029.

Dúirt an Feisire MacManus:

“Is teanga oifigiúil de chuid an Aontais Eorpaigh í an Ghaeilge. Ciallaíonn sé seo gur cheart go mbeadh na seirbhísí céanna ar fáil tríd Gaeilge mar atá i ngach teanga oifigiúil eile.

“Táimid i Sinn Féin huile is go hiomlán i bhfabhar leathnú a dhéanamh ar na teangacha atá ar fáil i bParlaimint na hEorpa. Sin an fáth go bhfuil díomá orm nach mbeidh lán seirbhísí Gaeilge ag Parlaimint na hEorpa go dtí deireadh an chéad téarma eile. 

“Tháinig deireadh leis an maolú teanga ar an Ghaeilge san AE i mí Eanáir 2022, ach fós níl lán seirbhísí ann don Ghaeilge nuair a thagann sé chun ateangaireacht. 

“I 2024, is mór an náire é seo agus anois caithfidh na húdaráis in Éirinn agus san Eoraip teacht le chéile chun plean a chur i bhfeidhm le cinntiú go mbeidh an leibhéal céanna seirbhísí ag an nGaeilge mar atá ag gach teanga oifigiúil eile.” CRÍOCH

MacManus expresses disappointment the European Parliament will not have full services in Irish

Sinn Féin MEP Chris MacManus has said that he is disappointed that the European Parliament will not have full services in the Irish language until 2029.

The European Parliament voted to extend a rule that leaves the European Parliament without full Irish and Maltese language services until the end of the next parliamentary term, in 2029. 

MEP MacManus said:

“Irish is an official language of the European Union. This means that the same services that are provided to all other official EU languages should be provided to the Irish language.

“We in Sinn Féin are in favour of expending the languages available in the European Parliament. That is why I am disappointed the European Parliament will not have full services in Irish until the end of the next Parliamentary term. 

“The derogation on the Irish language came to an official end in January 2022. Nevertheless, there are still some shortcomings when it comes to some of the interpretation services. 

“In the year 2024, this is shameful and the Irish and European authorities must now come together and put a plan in place to ensure the Irish language is treated no better and no worse than any other EU Language. ENDS
