Education Minister John O'Dowd praises Irish pre-school

Education Minister John O'Dowd has visited an Irish language nursery school in Tyrone to pay tribute to its staff and pupils.

He went to Gaelscoil Ui Neill in Coalisland yesterday where he met with children, its principal Conor McPhillips and staff.

He said: "Gaelscoil Ui Neill first opened its doors in 1995 and over the past 18 years the enrolment has steadily increased to its current 177 so there is no doubt there is a real demand for education through the medium of Irish in Coalisland and surrounding area."
