Order of Business - 18/10/2016) agus tuairiscíodh go raibh sé "borb go leor." Níos deanaí ar chlár Cormac@5 dúirt sé nach raibh sé borb go leor.
Seo mar a tuairiscíodh ar taifead on Oireachtais é:
"Senator (sic) Pádraig Ó Céidigh: Tá mé ag iarraidh ar Ceannaire an Tí cuireadh a thabhairt don Aire Stáit atá freagrach as an nGaeltacht teacht isteach chomh luath agus is féidir. Tá easpa suime léirithe ó thaobh na Gaeilge de agus ó thaobh fhorbairt na teanga agus ní hamháin sa Ghaeltacht ach sa tír seo ar fad. Sa bhuiséad a bhí ann an tseachtain seo caite, tá laghdú de 40% tagtha ar tacaíocht do Sheachtain na Gaeilge ó 2015 go 2016. Tá laghdú de 50% tagtha ar tacaíocht d'Údarás na Gaeltachta ó thaobh fostaíocht a chur ar fáil do mhuintir na Gaeltachta sna Gaeltachtaí.
One of the things we can be most proud of is our connection to the Irish language. This Government is ignoring Irish speakers and treating us as if we lived on an Indian reservation. I ask the Leader to ask the Minister of State with responsibility for the Gaeltacht to outline his Department's policy on the Gaeltacht and the development of the Irish language.
It was great to see students from a secondary school in the House earlier. We must teach and hand on to them those things that are unique and special about being Irish. We are very proud of being Irish and the more European and global we become and the more pervasive the Internet becomes, the more we must say this is who we are and this is what we, as a people, are about. Our language and culture are key in this regard.
I seek the support of all Senators for protecting the Irish language and culture and ensuring people living in the Gaeltacht regions enjoy similar employment opportunities as people living outside the Gaeltacht. We are currently treated as second class if not third class citizens."
Is duine den aon duine déag ainmnithe ag an Taoiseach é Pádraig Ó Céide.
