Mary’s Gift la blogo, From the Balcony, de Máirtín Ó Muilleoir:

Minister of Culture Nelson McCausland has turned his not inconsiderable linguistic focus to the comments of leading Irish American Mike Breen who recently launched Mary's Gift to help fund Irish schools here.

You can read the Minister's full comments here — apparently Mike's name came up on the ministerial radio because he referred to Pádraig Pearse as a "patriot". Who would ever have thought?

"Here once again we see the influence of Irish republicanism on the Irish language movement." Amazing stuff. Nelson's just copped on that Pádraig Pearse is effectively the father of the entire Irish language revival...
