The is much opposition to the new bill which, amongst other measures, scraps election to the board of Udarus Na Gaeltachta.

The threat to Mr Donal O Cnaimhsi came in a letter from his employers, the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

Mr O'Cnaimshi is a long standing member of Guth Na Gaeltachta which is strongly opposed to the new Bill.
