Ferdie’s fáilte for funding talk
Pól Ó Muirí
The Chief Executive of Foras na Gaeilge, Mr Ferdie Mac an Fhailigh, has said that he is heartened by the level of participation in the public meetings that the group has organised on its proposed New Funding Model. This model aims to replace the traditional block funding of Irish-language organisations with eight schemes which will provide Irish-language services, north and south.
Mac an Fhailigh urged people with an interest in Irish to send in submissions before the deadline of Monday, 2nd April. It was “vitally important for the future of Irish that people make their opinion known” he said in a statement yesterday. A summary of the advisory document can be found here.
