A Derry councillor wants Queen's University Belfast to reverse its decision not to re-introduce a bilingual English-Irish signage policy on campus.

QUB is a popular destination for Donegal students.

A spokesperson for the university has defended its decision, stating it is promoting a “good and harmonious working environment”.

But Sinn Féin Cllr Kevin Campbell, who is his party's Irish Language spokesperson, said: “This is a very disappointing response from Queen's University.

"The Irish Language belongs to us all, it is not a threat to a neutral working environment nor is it provocative, offensive or intimidatory in any way and the suggestion that it is, is ludicrous.

"This is an ill-thought out response from one of our key institutions, which is also one of the biggest employers in the North.

"It highlights, clearly, the need for an Irish Language Act which places the recognition of the language and the entitlement for those who wish to live their lives through the medium of Irish to do so, on statute.

"Sinn Féin will be requesting a meeting with Queen's University to discuss this."
