‘The few who seek to stop progress will not win’, says Irish language campaigner as nursery to open at alternative east Belfast location

Irish language campaigner Linda Ervine said efforts to bring the first Irish language nursery school - Naiscoil na Seolta - to east Belfast will not be derailed by bullying, bigotry and an online hate campaign.

Plans to locate the new pre-school, for children as young as two and a half years old, will go ahead at an alternative venue, with Ms Ervine saying the new location will be even closer to the heart of the east.
