Irish stations fail to communicate

Sir -- I fully support Dick Brennan's comments about TG4 (Sunday Independent, January 22, 2012).

RnaG is also hard to understand. I have honours Leaving Certificate and I have attended numerous day and night classes in the Irish language -- but still I find it difficult to understand the news reports of the above stations, TG4 and RnaG, because of the speed of delivery and dialects used.

I wrote to RnaG expressing my frustrations -- but I did not get a reply.

I love the Irish language however I feel both broadcasters are letting us down badly in making such inept attempts to communicate with the majority of people.

Both broadcasters should be using the funding they get from the State to encourage ordinary people to use the Irish language in their everyday lives.
