Look, I know it's the Gaeilge forum, but is it fair enough for someone to tell me what she said in English, as I don't speak Irish?
No problem. Bear with me and Ill translate it for you.

Well, for starters, she said “Níl mise ag iarraidh go mbeidh an ciste ag feidhmiú i ngeiteo.” ('I don't want the fund to be operating in a ghetto', in reference to West Belfast.)

Let me get this straight (and again, apologies for the English in the Gaeilge forum). Former TG4 hackette from Carlow goes to Belfast, nails plum local Quango job then pisses on the very people she has been broadcasting for?
Ghetto is serious language in those parts.

She also attacked the standard of Irish in the area and the quality of Irish-medium education. Then she complained that too many Irish speakers in the North are Republicans (personally I think their politics are of no concern to her).

As a civil servant she should not be able to get away with the public statements she's been coming out with.

Truly out of order. Is McGimpsey a Republican? My nipper isn't and she's a fluent gaeilgeoir (sp.?).
Presumably her Irish is not the same form as that spoken in the North? Would that not explain why she detects differences?
But the inflammatory language is unnecessary, and her point is not well made.

B'fhéidir go raibh sí ceart faoin méid a dúirt sí faoin Ghaeilge atá ag Gerry Adams.

Níl a fhios agam faoin caighdéan Gaeilge a tá ag cuid dena muinteoirí sna Gaelscoileanna ansin. Nílim ag rá go bhfuil sí mícheart. Tá droch muinteoirí i ngach áit.

Bhí cúig mhúinteoir im scoil Béarla agus ba chac iad go léir. Nílim a rá nach raibh siad ró-mhaith, bhí siad ina iomlán go huafásach mar múinteoirí. Níor mhúin mo cheannsa grammadach ar bith. Bhí sé ag múineadh Gaeilge Ardleibhéal agus níor mhúin sé grammadach! Agus na cinn eile, níor mhúin siad ar bith, ní sí le rá nár mhúinteoirí maith iad, go díreach, níor mhúin siad ar bith.

Sin Caighdeán Múinteoirí atá againne.
