Angry Irish Language Movement Contributing To Youth Suicide?

I have heard this argument made twice in the past month. Is this anti-working class, pro-segregation pro-discrimination movement contributing to rises in youth suicide in this country?

Are they damaging natural geographic communities and segregating young people living in the same neighbourhoods based on their ability to speak a non-functional dead language? Is this movement causing social isolation among young people living in certain areas of the country?

Hold on a second brah.

The worst bullies in the mon were the pricks in the AG section.
Their parents snobbishness and insecurities manifested itself in a fair bit of social and personality issues in the AG boys which caused them to bully the english speaking boys.

Were the TopGun lads not segregated, different building and even a different yard?

With a view over to the girls school.

Yes they were and more importantly they had their own outdoor toilet block.

Unfortunately we had to share the same main gate as them.

I have witnessed the exact opposite,where gaeilgeoirs got slagged on the street and elsewhere for their association with the language. I've never seen it descend into violence or anything suicidal.
Those fluent in Irish would be very much in a minority once they step outside the school gate. I think you have to look elsewhere for the underlying causes of suicide.Society's crazy relationship with alcohol and the non-acceptance of people on grounds of sexuality, etc. would, in my opinion, be a more fruitful place to start.

Name calling and assault.

They were dealt with.

I waited years to get one if them.

Not by me they didnt. Their parents sent them into that environment due to their own snobbishness and insecurities.

Like i said. It was dealt with.

I believe that the basketballers sexually assaulted by Br Brynant were english speaking.

Ive heard rumours that irish speaking boys were engaging in other things.
