Launch of translation hub a historic day for Irish language – Lynch

Sinn Féin MLA Seán Lynch has said the launch of a new translation hub by Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey is a historic day for the Irish language in the north. 

Seán Lynch said: 

“The launch of a translation hub for Irish and Ulster Scots is a historic step for language and identity in the north. 

“This will not only help who use the Irish language and Ulster Scots on a daily basis in a very practical way, it is also an important signal of respect for language and identity. 

“It is also an outworking of a commitment made in the New Decade, New Approach agreement. 

“We now need to see other commitments delivered on, including the delivery of Acht na Gaeilge and all outstanding commitments of the agreement.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
