Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP/MLA has today launched the annual Sinn Féin Slógadh in Howth, Dublin (19-21 October) and has urged all Irish speakers and learners everywhere to take part and enjoy the numerous events.

Mr Adams said:

"Sinn Féin has been to the forefront in promoting the importance and safeguarding the position of the Irish language and culture during the negotiations leading to the Good Friday Agreement and St Andrews Agreement on an all-Ireland basis."

Sinn Féin is the only political party to organise an annual Irish language conference.

The Slógadh brings together gaelgeoiri for debate, music and craic.

It is open to everyone.

The survival and revival of Irish has been our country's cultural success story. More and more people are using Irish. Young children in particular are being educated in increasing numbers through the medium of Irish and it is their future and their rights that must be cherished.

The images of the assault of a young woman campaigner at one of the 38
archaelogical sites on the route of the Proposed M3 by members of a private company;
and the criminalisation of those campaigners who have given time and energy
to forwarding awareness of the ecological and heritage implications of the
bi-section of the Gabhra Valley necessitates inquiry.

John Gormley has stated that his hands are tied and he can do nothing 'unless
something new comes up'. Well ,his hands may be tied but they have not been
placed in handcuffs for asserting the individuals right to protest. He has not been
jailed for conscientous objection.

I am calling on John Gormley to meet with the eight people who have been criminalised
and to speak to them about the brutal attacks that we have witnessed on this newswire.
The concerns of the campaigns regarding the liscensing of the 38 sites, the abuse of
mandate by Minister Roche and the failure of his Dept to engage with the issue.
