“Paritie o Esteim”?

…de la blogo, From the Balcony, de Máirtín Ó Muilleoir:

Meanwhile, a wee éinín tells me Minister for Culture Edwin Poots announced in the Assembly yesterday a £3m windfall for Ulster Scots but with no matching funding for An Ghaeilge. Not bad going for a department strapped for cash.
But in all the arguments over funding for Irish, don't forget that we're talking about comparative chicken feed here because the real dough is with the decisions to locate major 60-year projects in the east of the city, like Minister Poots' new £28m Public Records Office. Before the Titanic Quarter is finished, it will have swallowed up investment of over £1bn, and fair play to it.
