Jack Chambers said ( about Jack Chambers ) : “We are conscious of the consequences of this decision for the Gaeltacht economy which is reliant on the summer courses. "For this reason, we will evaluate the impact of this development on the sector with a view to progressing an appropriate stabilisation package". Katie Halpin-Hill, Irish Language Officer at the Secondary School Students Union, said it is a shame the courses can not go ahead this summer. She said: "Students are going to miss out on what can be a very valuable experience from a linguistic point of view, but also from the point of view, for many students, it is their first time leaving home. "I suppose, look, a whole cohort of students are going to miss out on a very valuable experience...but at the same time, you know public safety and student safety must absolutely come first". Mr Chambers acknowledged the disappointment that will be felt by "many young people who were looking forward to attending this year". He added: "Some Irish Colleges will be offering online digital courses in 2021 and the Department is also supporting a number of digital initiatives to allow young people to continue to develop their language skills over the summer months and beyond” External link
