Sinn Fein answers Poots’ prayers…

NO sooner did the DUP language minister answer Chris’ prayers and finally attend an Irish language event, than Sinn Fein announces the launch of its first Irish language branch in Dublin. Since Sinn Fein is keen to de-politicise the language, it, err, named the cumann after a murdered IRA member. Sweet serendipity for Poots, as the timing of the announcement gave him a good excuse to justify his lack of support for an Irish language act. Naturally, Pobal declined to comment.
