The man who will be teaching Joe McHugh Irish in the coming weeks has said he is puzzled by the attention the new Gaeltacht minister has been receiving over the quality of his Irish.

Liam Ó Cuinneagáin, a director of Oideas Gael in Gleann Cholm Cille, told The Irish times: “Joe’s been here twice already and came off his own bat so I have to say I’m slightly puzzled by all the attention the story is getting.

“This is really about sharpening the tools he will need to do his job as well as he can, but he is a very smart man and there will be no difficulties.”
