Eoghan Mac Cormaic

Gaeltacht Minister Eamon O Cuiv says he has "no problem" with the appointment of a former IRA man, convicted of murdering a 19-year-old part-time policewoman in Derry, to a senior position in the cross-Border Irish language funding quango Foras na Gaeilge.

Eoghan Mac Cormaic (52), now a Sinn Fein town councillor in Loughrea, Co Galway, was appointed deputy chairman of the funding organisation last month.

Foras na Gaeilge has a budget of around €15m of Irish taxpayers' money, which it disburses to Irish language groups mainly in the North, several of which have Sinn Fein associations and pay salaries to ex-IRA prisoners. It was set up under the terms of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement.

Unbelievably biased and inaccurate article.
