La lrlandalingvo, Ulsterskota kaj Civitanaj Festoj la Londonderry Sentinel:

Culture Minister Gregory Campbell has warned Derry City Council that proposals giving Irish greater priority than Ulster-Scots in civic festivals will outrage and further alienate unionists.

If adopted, the new proposals would mean that a reason must be given if an element to promote the Irish language is not included in civic festivals and events.That would not be the case for Ulster-Scots.

New Ulster-Scots and Irish Language policies will be considered tomorrow by the council's Planning and Resources Committee and will have a number of wide-ranging implications.

However, Irish appears to enjoy greater priority in the proposals - and Mr Campbell has warned that adopting them would be a serious mistake...
