Members of Ógra Shinn Féin held a day of action in Derry and across the north on Saturday calling for the introduction of Acht Na Gaeilge. They collected hundreds of signatures outside the Millennium Forum in the city centre .

Chairperson in Derry Caolán McGinley said DSC_0100

We are very pleased at how the day of action went in Derry on Saturday .Hundreds of people signed the petition calling for the introduction of Acht Na Gaeilge and took away information on the campaign.

There are hundreds of children going to schools in the city learning through the medium of Irish and hundreds of people of all ages attending night classes and hundreds taking part in cultural musical and sporting activities .This was magnified tenfold when Derry hosted the Fleadh in 2013.

The Irish language is a threat to no one and people should embrace diversity by engaging with the current consultation which is ongoing.
