TUARASCÁIL:IS minic a bhíonn míreanna spéisiúla faoi chúrsaí staire agus teanga ag an staraí, Éamon Phoenix, ar a cholún laethúil san Irish News, On This Day.

Bhí ceann aige arú inné a bhain le hÉamon de Valera agus an teanga ón bhliain 1943: “Speaking at the Fianna Fáil Ard-Fheis yesterday, the Taoiseach, Mr de Valera replied to newspaper criticism of the Irish language cause.

“Certain papers took every opportunity to do harm to the language movement,” he said. “The Irish Times never fails to give me material for a speech whenever I am hard-pressed. There is a certain amount of consolation in that.”
