In the 1930s, Dev has asked the Dublin civil servants if an Irish language radio station couldn't be set up. After all, the whole point of Easter 1916 and the Republic had been to protect and promote the Irish language and culture. We could have stayed quite happily as English speaking morons under the Brits. But, he was told it would be "too expensive" and Dev, being the cute hoor he always was, just accepted that "advise." It wasn't until 1972, after years of hunger strikes and protests, that the free state set up Raidió na Gaeltachta. By then, the Irish language was mortally wounded and an indescribable wealth of folklore, songs and knowledge had gone to the grave without being recorded for our Future Generations (who are now to be aborted anyway).
Not so with Adolf Hitler and the German National Socialists. During the 1940s, they set up the world's first all Irish radio station. Here is a TG4 documentary on the noble efforts of the Führer and his Comrades to save the Irish language and to make Irish men Proud Patriots - instead of homosexual gombeens.
