MARINA EXPANSION LEADS TO FEARS OVER WELSH LANGUAGE  
Penygroes, Alban Hefin 6/21/2005 by Dafydd Meirion

Nationalist councillors in north-west Wales are split on whether or not
the expansion of a marina will have a detrimental effect on the Welsh
language. Gwynedd Council - which is run by Plaid Cymru - owns yr Hafan
marina in Pwllheli and due to its popularity with English sailors and
yacht owners there has been pressure on the council to expand the number
of berths there, by as much as 300. Many organisations in this
Welsh-speaking heartland are opposed to the development, fearing more
pressure on the housing market and a further decline in the number of
speakers as English incomers move in.

Glaschu / Glasgow 6/18/2005 by Màrtainn MacLeòid

a dedicated Gaelic digital television channel by January 2007.
