Promoting the Irish language?

If the relevant Government Minister should be a champion for Irish as a living, vibrant language, could you choose a worse representative than Eamon O’Cuiv?

The man is a throwback to the 19th century Victorian era.

He has always seemed to be about 30 years older than his calendar age in demeanour and dress. His speech, both in tone and content, is dull and pedantic lawyer-speak. I don't know him but he gives every impression of being a charisma-free zone.

One must assume that it’s only Fianna Fail loyalty to the de Valera lineage that has him in the Dail.
