A report issued on March 29th by An Cominiseir Teanga castigated a number of public bodies and county councils for their failure to carry out their statutory duties vis-à-vis the Irish language.
What a piece of unbelievable tokenism. I never knew such an organisation or person existed. Talk about Mahogany gas-pipes!
People can be assured that, through the efforts of this organisation, they are being ripped off, cheated and oppressed bilingually. For so many officials of local government the only phrase of Irish they might need would be “An bhfuil an airgead agat?”
In spite of all this hypocrisy the Irish language still thrives, though its obsequies have been choreographed with typically bureaucratic incompetence, and its undertakers have been richly renumerated.
By the way is there a Cominiseir Bubilin?
