Irish fun fact

Irish, also known as Irish Gaelic, is the first official language of the Republic of Ireland, English being the second. Although Irish was the dominant language in Ireland before the 17th century, English became more common with the advent of British rule. Most who speak Irish regularly live along Ireland's western coast. Learn More

Why should you
learn Irish?

 

About the Irish language

Irish is a Gaelic language and part of the Indo-European language group, and it's the only Gaelic tongue recognized as an official language in the European Union. Over 1.6 million people speak Irish—around 80 thousand of them on a daily basis in Ireland.

Where you can speak Irish?

Irish is the national and first language of the Republic of Ireland, but in practice the language of government and business is English. The connection between Irish and the country's history and culture is irrevocably ingrained in how Ireland's people think and express themselves—as with any language, really. The Gaeltachtaí are regions around Ireland where Irish is actively spoken as the daily vernacular. In all, seven counties around the country act as a repository for this ancient language, which has been spoken for over two thousand years and remains largely intact today.

About the Irish culture and history

The Irish are known for their gift of gab and their spirited music and dance. From traditional limericks, folklore, and stories as intricately woven as a Celtic knot, the ability to speak and understand Irish could be a word lover's and storyteller's dream. As for the music, who wouldn't want to find themselves in a neighborhood pub listening to the beat of a bodhrán, a penny whistle, and an Irish tenor singing a traditional tune?

Fun fact about the Irish language

There's no yes or no in the Irish language. There are, however, ways to answer "yes" or "no" questions via a verb form. If asked, "Did they buy the house?" you would respond "[They] sold" or "[They] didn't sell."
