ABSTRACT
The article discusses the motion of Lord Maurice Morrow of Northern Ireland to abandon the introduction of Irish-medium schools in Dungannon and South Tyrone. Morrow said that the schools will have a detrimental impact on the present and future education budgets. Minister of Education Caitriona Ruane said a statutory duty to facilitate and encourage Irish-medium education was tasked upon her. Also, enough numbers of commitment to Irish language recorded by the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages forced the rejection of Morrow's motion.
