Today sees more controversy with regards to Newry, Mourne and Down Councils Irish language policy.
An issue since the 1940s it is unlikely to ever go away.
The area itself is no stronghold for the language and progress for the Irish language movement has been stop start in the district.
But recent years have seen real advances in the language’s fortunes with big growth in Irish medium education in the area.
Next week a meeting will be held in Crossmaglen to form a new community structure in South Armagh.
The fact that people are based in Newry’s Gaeláras is also making a marked difference.
But one area that no progress has been made on in terms of the language is the unionist community’s attitude to it as today’s issue shows.
