Now You See It…Now You Don’t – Peter Robinson as Gaeilge!

MakeITsecure is a cross-border initative, sponsored by Department of Finance and Personnel in NI and and Department for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources in RoI, encouraging security when using the internet and when engaging in online activities.

As is standard, the two respective Ministers (Peter Robinson MP, MLA and Eamon Ryan TD) have penned an introduction to the accompanying literature expressing their support for this worthwhile initiative.

However, things get interesting when the English version of MakeITsecure literature is compared to the PDF download of the Irish version of MakeITsecure literature language translation. Our minister seems reticent to give a ‘fáilte mhór’ to the iniative in Irish.

Curiously enough, in the hardcopy version that was distributed with Lá Nua last week, the Minister is happily smiling on Page two and giving, what I think, is his first welcome to anything in Irish.
