A bit Irish

•GG Dalton of Rathmines, Dublin, (Letters, September 23) is disappointed that FG reneged on its promise about compulsory Irish, but almost 70pc of Irish parents think otherwise.

He expresses his views on how Gaeltacht people should carry their culture forward by making insulting remarks about them and makes it clear that he doesn't respect their culture.

Even if Mr Dalton did receive beatings over the 'modh coinniollach', his feelings are just blind ignorance if he doesn't acknowledge the attitudes the masses have towards our native language -- in which about 180,000 are fluent.
