Dept 'failed Irish language duties'

The Department of Education and Skills has been reported to the Houses of the Oireachtas by the Irish language commissioner who claimed it has failed to fulfil its obligations under the Education Act 1998.

An Coimisinéir Teanga Rónán Ó Domhnaill said he referred the case onto the Oireachtas because recommendations made as part of a statutory investigation, into placing non-fluent Irish speaking teachers in a Gaeltacht school, were not satisfactorily implemented.
