Conradh na Gaeilge today co-ordinated an event with representatives of political parties and independent politicians outside Leinster House to highlight their cross-party support for #AchtAnois, as part of the Dream Dearg language rights campaign, for Irish language legislation in the north to be enacted without further delay.

Thousands of people are expected to walk to City Hall to call for the Irish language legislation promised in the 2006 St Andrews Agreement, the 2020 New Decade New Approach agreement, by the British Government Secretary of State Brandon Lewis, in 2021 and by the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson this week during a visit to Belfast.
Representatives from Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael, Green Party, Labour, People Before Profit, Sinn Féin, Social Democrats and the independents were in attendance.
