The Welsh and Irish Press !

So its not only our papers here in Wales that directs, 'bile and hatred' towards the Welsh language; the same is happening in Ireland. HT to ANSIONNACHFIONN for constantly challenging negative attitudes to all things Celtic and Gaelic.

This article by Ann Marie Hourihane is frankly a disgrace particularly the last paragraph linking Irish speakers with terrorism and intolerance:
“…I wrote that the Irish language was our equivalent of the hijab, the headscarf worn by orthodox Muslim women as a badge of identity and compliance, a figleaf to cover a web of unacknowledged weaknesses.”
