Fine Gael is blasted over anthem law

FIANNA Fail has slammed Fine Gael for blocking moves to enshrine the national anthem in law.

The party said Fine Gael senators have teamed up with Independent Padraig O Ceidigh to stop a recommendation in a Seanad report to commit to protect Amhran na bhFiann with legislation.

Fianna Fail said the anthem has never been formally adopted.

It added a majority in Seanad Eireann was in favour of the move.

Fianna Fail senator Mark Daly said: “The fact it fell out of copyright protection in 2013 makes this all the more important.

“Fianna Fail will continue its campaign to have Amhran na bhFiann put on a statutory footing.”
