Armagh Irish Speaking Community left devastated as funding application is rejected for Campa Mhacha
Campa Mhacha - Application Rejected
Campa Mhacha is an annual event which over 100 Irish speaking children from the Armagh area have attended for over 10 years. Its a fantastic summer scheme which gives children a chance to socially engage with other bilingual children out of the classroom.
It has been claimed that the Royal Mail did not deliver the application form in time and despite a receipt to prove that it was sent in ample time, the funders are not prepared to accept this. It has been claimed that our application form may have been held back as the address was written in Irish, even though it contained building number and postcode.
We regret that 100 young Irish speakers in Armagh will miss out on the opportunity to attend an Irish language summer camp, but unfortunately we have no other option.
Ar an drochuair, maítear dúinn nár sheachaid Oifig an Phoist ár bhfoirm iarratais in am agus cé go bhfuil an admháil againn le cinntiú gur cuireadh sa phost in am é, níl na maoinitheoirí sásta glacadh leis an fhoirm ...iarratais. Maítear gur coinníodh siar é de thairbhe go raibh an seoladh i nGaeilge.
Tá muid iontach buartha go gcaillfidh 100 páiste Gaelscoile amach ar champa samhraidh i mbliana mar gheall air seo, ach níl an dara rogha againn.
We can not be continuously silenced in regards to the Irish language, please let your voice be heard and sign this petition!!
