McGlone: SDLP will fight axing of Gaeltacht scholarships

SDLP Mid-Ulser MLA and Irish Language Spokesperson Patsy McGlone has criticised Communities Minister Paul Givan for his decision to axe scholarships for 100 children to attend An Ghaeltacht.

Mr McGlone said, "After watching the DUP set fire to £400million, or £600million according to the Finance Minister, this announcement will leave a sour taste for the Irish speaking community.


"Without wanting to sound cynical, one has to wonder if Minister Givan hasn't taken this decision, at this particular time, to reintroduce tribal politics to a public currently focused on the DUP's many financial scandals.


"We will be making representations to the Minister where we will press him to reverse this unfair and retrograde step."
