THIS YEAR’S SEACHTAIN Na Gaeilge comes at a particularly troubling time for the Irish language.

About 5,000 people protested in Dublin a number of weeks ago about its place in society with the language commissioner also resigning in protest at the Government’s progress on the issue.

This morning’s column debates whether Gaeilgeoirí are being oppressed in Irish society. But what do you think?

Poll Results:

No, more must be done. (1454)
Nil a fhios agam. (1063)
Too much is being done. (659)
