SF answers DUP over EU Subsidies for Irish Films

A press release from SF reports that SF South Down Assembly Member Caitriona Ruane said "Mr Allister's comments are typical of a party that is fundamentally opposed to the promotion of anything Irish and it seems he is attempting to hinder the thousands of people, of all ages, who are learning their native language in ever increasing numbers."

The word native in the dictionary is described as 'existing in or belonging to one by nature'. Surely your so-called native language of Irish should not have to be 'learnt' as you put it by an inhabitant of Ireland if it were truly the mother tongue of the country. I fully agree with Mr Allister in this case that it is a total waste of money and there is no real need for it!
