We are calling on the Minister for Education and Skills, Norma Foley, TD, to continue his support for Irish as a core leaving certificate subject and to develop a comprehensive Policy for Irish in the Education System from Pre-School to Third Level within 6 months. A consultation process should be undertaken immediately to develop the policy and, as was done with the development of the Gaeltacht Education Policy, the consultation should include submissions from the public, public meetings, stakeholder meetings, etc.

Táimid ag éileamh ar an Aire Oideachais agus Scileanna, Norma Foley, TD, seasamh go leanúnach leis an nGaeilge mar chroí-ábhar ardteiste agus Polasaí cuimsitheach don Ghaeilge sa Chóras Oideachais ón Réamhscoil go dtí an Tríú Leibhéal a fhorbairt laistigh de 6 mhí. Ba chóir próiseas comhairliúcháin a chur ar bun láithreach bonn leis an bpolasaí a fhorbairt agus, ar nós a rinneadh le forbairt an Pholasaí Oideachais Gaeltachta, ba chóir go gcuirfí aighneachtaí ón bpobal, cruinnithe poiblí, cruinnithe le geallsealbhóirí agus eile san áireamh sa chomhairliúchán.

12,250 Noelle Ní Riagáin The Languages Act needs to include All Secondary schools so we Irish speakers are protected. Also the Patronage voting system is out dated and biased at best it must be changed to resolve the issue where Gaelscoils are being disadvantaged when casting votes.

12,241 Niamh Ní Thuathail Is múinteoir Gaeilge mé, ach chomh maith le sin is Gaeilgeoir é. Táim ag labhairt an Ghaeilge ón bhunscoil agus leabhraím í gach lá le mo Theaghlach. Is cúis náire í go bhfuil daoine ag smaoineamh faoi í a bhaint ónár gcónaí Oideachais. s cuid dár n-oidhreacht í an Ghaeilge. Tá an Ghaeilge mar chuid dár bhféiniúlacht féin. Ba cheart go mbeimis bródúil aisti.

12,238 Muireann Ní Loingsigh The education system causes students to hate their native language instead of celebrating how beautiful it is!! It also is just a completely unobtainable standard for students to achieve with the resources we are given. We are expected to have a near-fluent command of the language, yet most people can only ask to go to the toilet.

12,234 Noah Higgs With the new Languages Act amendment, it's more relevant and easier to justify putting the effort into this now! We all intuitively know the clichéd Irish person who wishes they'd learned in school, but just didn't. Let's redesign it so they can have one fewer regret in life.
12,233 Aaron Whelan We don't appreciate Irish because we give too much public space to right-wing canards(or any). It's time to put an end to this. Teach it good, teach it right and raise a bilingual country. Two official languages means TWO official languages.

12,186 Ella Walsh I am a current 5th year student studying irish. At the moment I am an ardleibhéil student but I am finding it hard as the course is very dense and confusing and doesn’t allow room for mistakes or growth the language is meant to be fun to learn not a punishment.

12,172 Ciara Ní Shúilleabháin Is cuid dár gcultúr agus dár n-oidhreact í an Ghaelainn. I mo thuairim, tá sé tábhachtach Gaelainn a choiméad mar theanga beo, mar is teanga oifigiúil í don Aontas Eorpach! Tugann an t-ábhar deis do dhaoine óga an cultúr a bhlaiseadh. É sin ráite, caithfimid an Ghaelainn a spreagadh i measc na ndaoine óga.
