EU officially recognises Irish language

It’s good to hear today that the EU has voted to add Irish as the 21st official working language of the EU, with effect from 2007.

This move has followed a long campaign by the Government, and is a recognition of the strength of the language in Ireland today. Hopefully this will herald future growth in the usage of our native tongue both in Europe for official purposes, and back home for more every-day reasons.
