...de la Irish Times:
The only Irish-language newspaper in existence, Foinse , says it may cease publication after this weekend with the possible loss of 10 full-time and two part-time jobs in the Conamara Gaeltacht, unless it receives more funding from the cross-Border Irish language promotion body, Foras na Gaeilge.
The paper’s owner, Pádraig Ó Céidigh, said in a statement that he had informed staff yesterday at the Carraroe-based weekly that he had refused to accept a new contract from Foras na Gaeilge, because of the amount of money involved.
He will have an emergency meeting with the funders today about the newspaper which was founded in 1996. He said that unless some ‘‘solution’’ was found, this weekend’s edition would be the last.
