From: Ross Chambers
Subject: Peace - in any language

One aspect of the Irish Peace agreement reached at Easter, summarised in
the Irish Times, underlines the importance of matters of language.

Regards - Ross Chambers

<< The agreement yesterday between the British and Irish
governments and the political parties in Northern Ireland
aims to end almost 30 years of bitter civil and sectarian
conflict and lay the foundations of peaceful coexistence
between the two communities in Northern Ireland, and
between the North and the South.

The importance of respect for and tolerance of the Irish
language, Ulster-Scots "and the languages of the various
ethnic communities" is explicitly recognised. The British
government is to take "resolute action" to promote the
Irish language.>>
