Brooklyn and Belfast

The blog knew something about the murals of Belfast before its recent travels there, but just discovered the school wall murals of Brooklyn.

POBAL is an organization that lobbies for the Irish language community: "
Scátheagras phobal na Gaeilge." Interestingly, once again Minister of Culture, Arts and Leisure Nelson McCausland's personal blog offers an interesting perspective. He makes the point that there are two indigenous minority languages in Northern Ireland - Irish and Ulster-Scots - and notes similarities to the situation in Scotland, where Scots and Gaelic are the minority languages.
