Minister for State Sean Kyne TD launches a Language Plan for County Kildare

Sean Kyne TD , Government Chief Whip and Minister of State for Irish, the Gaeltacht and the Islands, has tonight launched Language Plan 2019-2023 for County Kildare in Áras Chill Dara, County Kildare.

The Minister of State said: “Kildare language plan sets out a framework for the development of the Irish Language in County Kildare. It addresses the needs of those people who speak Irish, those who wish to learn it and the wishes of those who support it.

The funding that has been provided by Foras na Gaeilge and Kildare County Council will give Sult na Sollán the opportunity to proceed to do a number of things locally to further enhance the position of the Irish language as a language in the area.”

The Minister of State said that he was hoping that all the interested parties who have influence in the area would be willing to play an active part in strengthening the position of the Irish language – something that will benefit both the Irish language and the area as a whole.
