Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell has congratulated Queen’s University students who voted in favour of Irish Language and Trans officers in a campus-wide referendum.
The party’s local Irish Language spokesperson said:
“Today’s referendum results are a welcome step forward in recognising the role that Irish speakers and Trans citizens play in our society and on university campuses.
“This is also reflective of the growing demand from students and young people for equality.
“Irish speaking students are entitled to the same rights as enjoyed by citizens who live their daily lives through the medium of English and this is a progressive move by QUBSU.
“Sinn Féin will continue to support the campaign for Acht Na Gaeilge and full equality for our LGBTQ community which includes rights and legal protections, just as exists elsewhere on these islands.”
