Joe McHugh T.D., Government Chief Whip and Minister of State for the Irish Language, the Gaeltacht and the Islands, announced today that he has sanctioned a grant of up to €33,600 for Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne to enable them to employ an Irish-Language Coordinator in Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne.
The Minister of State said: “Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne has an important influence on the preservation and promotion of the Irish language on the peninsula. This is a worthwhile measure which shows my Department’s commitment to supporting the successful implementation of the 20-Year Strategy for the Irish Language”.
Note to editor
The coordinator will be responsible for supporting students with little Irish so that they can optimise their education in the Pobalscoil.
