EARLIER THIS WEEK, Irish language commissioner Seán Ó Cuirreáin resigned from his position, mainly due to the lack of government action taken to improve services through Irish.

Though school children are still obliged to learn the language all through their education, there have been criticism of efforts made to encourage people to use it afterwards. In an opinion piece on today, Aaron McKenna suggests we should either go full Irish or drop the language altogether.

We want to know what you think: Should we do more to encourage the use of the Irish language in everyday life?
