...de la Irish Independent:

"The native tongue could soon be all but dead, according to a new government report. It predicts that unless trends are reversed, Irish will cease to exist as the language of home and community in Gaeltacht regions...

...But there is a considerable rump within Irish society that would not only be indifferent to this appalling vista, but actively rejoice in it. You know the sort: those cringing self-haters with who suffer from a post-colonial inferiority complex of gargantuan proportions. For these cultural Uncle Toms, anything distinctively Irish is automatically bad, anything foreign indubitably good."
