Culture Minister Carál Ní Chuilín presented Cúpla Focal badges to over eighty children at Holy Trinity Primary School.
Speaking at the school, the Minister said: “I am delighted to be here today at Holy Trinity Primary School to present the Cúpla Focal badges and certificates to everyone. This is a fantastic achievement by each and every one of the pupils.

Peye Holy Trinity 05It is fantastic to see Irish-language groups like Glór na Móna working with English-medium primary schools and giving the pupils the opportunity to learn the language. It was great to see so many pupils actively learning the language and there are 12,000 people like them around the north who have committed to learn or improve their Irish through the Líofa campaign.

“I have said before the Irish language is for everyone and the pupils at Holy Trinity have begun their journey of learning Irish, a journey that I hope they will continue on in the future.Peye Holy Trinity 06

“As a learner myself, I know that it is not easy to learn a language but all the time and hard work is worth it. Well done to everyone today who achieved their Cúpla Focal.”

Well done and congratulations to all who took part.
