Ian O'Doherty

…de la Irish Independent:

May this column be the first to congratulate school teacher Catherine Ryan on her High Court action forcing cigarette companies to print health warnings in Irish as well as English on their packets.

Sure, some people have said that it was a ridiculous waste of time and money and it was just the kind of cranky tokenism which makes people hate Irish language activists.

But thanks to Ms Ryan, the vast hordes of Gaeilgoraí [sic] who were dying in their thousands because they couldn't understand the English language warnings can now be protected from their habit.

Maith an cailín... or something.
