Gaelscéal : New Funding Model, Northern Irish groups fear they have been stroked

Anton Mac Cába

Irish language organisations in the North fear that they have been have been stroked by a new ‘partitionist’ funding model.

Tá eagrais Ghaeilge sa Tuaisceart buartha go bhfuil siad á sailleadh ag samhail nua mhaoinithe ‘críoch-dheighilteach’.

Sceitheadh roinnt de na sonraí an tseachtain seo caite, maidir le scéim nua mhaoinithe ag Foras na Gaeilge. De réir an ailt, tá sé ‘cheanneagraíocht’ le bheith ann. Beidh siad freagrach as réimsí difriúla d’obair teanga.

Tuigtear go mbeidh seacht n-eagras san iomaíocht mar ‘cheanneagraíochtaí’. Níl ceann ar bith acu lonnaithe sa Tuaisceart. Beidh na ‘ceanneagraíochtaí’ ábalta fochonarthaí a thabhairt d’eagrais eile.

críoch-dheighilteach – partitionist

    Cén eagraíocht atá a cheannáras lonnaithe sa tuaisceart a d’fheadfaí ‘ceanneagras’ a thabhairt orthu in aon ceann de na earnáil atá á phlé ag an Forais de réir an modh seo, agus cén ceann de na heagraisí a bheidh ina cheanneagrais nách bhfuil ina eagraíocht uile éireannach.

    Ní dóigh liom go bhfuil scéal ar bith anseo. Tá daoine atá gníomach i saol an Ghaeilge sa tuaisceart, agus ata ag deigleáil leis an proiséas seo i bhfad níos sásta leis an modh seo ná an SNM mk.1

    ‘Irish language organisations in the North fear that they have been have been stroked by a new ‘partitionist’ funding model. ‘

    Would you care to explain why?

    If you paste this page’s URL into Google Translate it will give you a fair to middling translation.

    However, from what I understand, details of a new funding scheme by Foras na Gaeilge have been leaked which indicate that only bids from organisations based in the Republic will be allowed. It should be pointed out that these bidders are the Lead Organisations that could then potentially subcontract out work to orgs in the North.

    “You can read the rest of this story in this week’s Gaelscéal.”

  • Blissett

    The story is a nonsense covenanter.

    The model being proposed for funding is that it be channelled through 6-7 lead groups in the respectives sub-sectors of work in the language, such as education, language promotion, language advocacy etc etc.

    It would be nuts to designate an organisation a lead organisation purely because it is northern, particularly given that they are practically all all Ireland bodies. It is indeed unlikely that one of these lead organisations will be headquatered in Belfast. By the same token, it is also unlikely that any of these lead organisations will be cork based.
