"The British are backsliding on the commitments made under the Equality and Human Rights terms of the Good Friday Agreement," said IAUC National President, Kate McCabe.

"It is unfortunate that their commitments to take resolute action to support, promote and facilitate the Irish language have yielded no tangible results," she said.

Earlier on Saturday, Daithí MacLochlainn will host a
