Minister wants modern method for Irish

May 31, 2011

Minister of State for Gaeltacht Affairs Dinny McGinley has said that technology used to teach foreign languages must also be used to teach Irish in schools.

The Minister was elaborating yesterday on a Dáil statement last week on plans for the 20-year Irish language strategy, introduced in 2006, which aims to increase the number of people speaking Irish on a daily basis from 83,000 to 250,000.
