Clare County Council today debated a motion through the Irish language for the first time in decades. The local authority gave their commitment to backing an Irish language Summer School for West Clare – based on the life of noted Gaeilgeóir and a champion of the Irish language, Anrai De Blác.
The motion on the subject, which was put forward by Cllr Gabriel Keating (FG) was passed at today’s January meeting of Clare County Council. A debate on the motion was conducted entirely in the Irish language – the first motion completed ‘as Gaeilge’ by the local authority in a number of years.
Cllr Keating, Cllr Christy Curtin (IND) and Mayor of Clare, Joe Arkins (FG) each spoke on the motion in the Irish language with only Pat Keane (FF) speaking in English.
