Minister of State Kyne welcomes Campaí Cúla4

Press Release, 12 June 2020

 

Minister of State for the Irish Language, the Gaeltacht and the Islands Senator Seán Kyne, today welcomed the announcement from TG4 that the television series Campaí Cúla4 will be broadcast 5 days a week for a period of 5 weeks by the station. The series – which will be aimed at young people, will be broadcast each morning from 10:00 until 10:30, Monday to Friday from the 29th of June.

 

The series is being produced with funding support from the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and Foras na Gaeilge as a particular measure under the Government’s Irish Language Action Plan 2018-2022 which is being implemented on a cross Government basis to accelerate the enforcement of the state policy for the Irish language: The 20 Year Strategy for the Irish Language 2010-2030.

 

Minister of State Seán Kyne stated:

‘With the uncertainty surrounding whether or not summer camps will go ahead this summer as they usually would as a result of COVID-19, Campaí Cúla4 will help alleviate this loss for Irish speaking children in the Gaeltacht and all over the country.’
