Irish language schools needed
THERE are only eight secondlevel gaelscoileanna or gaelcholaisti in Dublin today – five on the southside of the city and three on the northside.
I have the height of respect for Tanaiste and Education Minister Mary Coughlan. I am, however, surprised that she still has not given the people involved in setting up two new gaelcholaisti a date for when they can open.
Colaiste Ghlor na Mara, on the northside, and Gaelcholaiste Deisceart Bhaile Atha Cliath, on the southside, would be very welcome schools to thousands of young people.
