Irishman bans Welsh language from his hotel

17-07-2003 20:51

A controversy is brewing in north Wales following revelations that an Irish hotel owner in a Welsh-speaking area has told his staff to stop speaking Welsh.

The controversy arose because of an investigation into the Celtic Royal Hotel in Caernarfon by the BBC Wales television programme, "Taro Naw".

The hotel was bought by a group of businessmen from Ireland a few years ago who then received substantial amounts of public money to develop it.

"Taro Naw" investigated complaints made by a number of former staff among them that the management of the hotel had ordered staff not to speak Welsh to each other in front of guests.

According to one who worked as a porter: 'If you were talking in Welsh on the walkie-talkie, you were warned that you would be sacked.'
