HEAR MORE: Are rural areas not getting same investment in gaelscoileanna?

Primary school children in rural areas are not being given the same opportunity as those in urban centres to learn through Irish.

This is according to Julian De Spainn, General Secretary of Conradh na Gaeilge, who was responding to recent figures which show that 1 in 12 primary schools are now taught in Irish meaning it’s at record level.

While this figure is seen as a positive there are still some areas in the country that do not have the same access to education through Gaeilge.

Julian De Spainn joined Aaron McElroy on The Wider View earlier.
