Irish Rugby International Luke Fitzgerald on Irish Gaelic

From the Irish Independent:

"Irish rugby international Luke Fitzgerald has called for more money to be put into promoting wider use of the Irish language and helping people develop their Irish language skills.

"Speaking a day after Ireland's bruising encounter with France, the Leinster and Ireland winger said he would like to see 'a big revival of the Irish language'.

"A fluent Irish speaker himself, the 25-year-old Dubliner said that despite the tough economic circumstances it was still important to put money into the language as it gave people a sense of Irishness."
