It shouldn't even be an issue and should raise the disdain from good citizens that anyone would disrespect our national language but this is Ireland, where disloyalty and cynicism is the national character trait just below greed.(Topic shamelessly lifted from Adrian Kennedy phone show, I only caught the last few mins of what sounded like an interesting debate though)
Should Irish be a compulsory or optional subject in school(like French or German)? Bearing in mind that school prepares us for the big bad world should people who dont see a place in their life for Gaeilge be forced to learn it?
