Mick Fealty of the Irish news and current affairs blog Slugger O’Toole is looking for crowd-sourced questions to put to Micheál Martin, leader of Fianna Fáil, at this year’s Ard-Fheis. I’ve already offered one suggestion and I’d ask others interested in equal rights for Irish-speakers, FF standing for election in the north-east of the country, the economy north and south, and many other nationally important matters to offer their suggestions at the relevant Google Moderator page (sign in using Google/Gmail to leave a question). Try and keep them short and without obvious point-scoring, and hopefully a few of the tougher ones might get through.
Séamas Ó Sionnaigh: “If elected what policies would Fianna Fáil implement in relation to the rights of Irish-speaking citizens? Do you personally favour a fully bilingual Ireland along the lines of Québec or Catalonia? Will you legislate to create such a state?”
