Muscraí Gaeltacht community must have their voices heard

Cork North West TD, Aindrias Moynihan is calling on the people of the Muscraí Gaeltacht to come out and give their views on the future of the Irish language and Gaeltacht communities.

Deputy Moynihan has secured a visit of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Gaeilge, an Ghaeltacht and the Islands to the Muscraí Gaeltacht on Monday, 2nd October 2017.

“This is a brilliant opportunity for the people of Muscraí to have their views heard on the future of their community and of their native language.

“The Committee is actively seeking to hear the views of people directly affected by Government decisions on the language and the Gaeltacht.

“Some of the topics to be discussed include the Plean Teanga and the Gaeltacht Schools Plan. These two issues will directly affect life in the Muscraí Gaeltacht for the next 20 years.

“Too many Government decisions are made by people who don’t understand the particular needs of Gaeltacht communities. This is an opportunity to change people’s views and opinions, and I am urging the community to have their voices heard.

“Anyone interested in having their opinion heard can leave or make a submission at my office in Macroom or by emailing

“As a resident of Muscraí Gaeltacht, I care passionately about the future of our community and of language, and I want everyone’s voices heard by the other members,” concluded Moynihan.
