Irish to become official EU language

13 June 2005 14:43
The Irish language is to be given official and working status in the European Union.

EU Foreign Ministers meeting in Luxembourg today supported the proposal, which is now certain to be formally adopted this afternoon.

Irish is to be become the 21st official language of the European Union.

This will mean that from 1 January 2007, all key EU legislation will be translated into Irish. Plans to extend this to other legislation will reviewed four years later.

At ministerial level, provisions will be put in place for Irish to be spoken at council meetings. On a practical level, Irish citizens applying for jobs with EU institutions, where two or more official EU languages are required, will be able to put down Irish from January 2007.

However, it comes at a cost, a spokesman for the Department of Foreign Affairs said between 20-30 translators would have to be employed in various EU institutions, at a cost of 3.5m each year.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Dermot Ahern, welcomed today's unanimous decision.

He said it represented a particularly significant practical step for the language, and complemented the Government's wider policy of strong support for Irish in Ireland.


Bullshite! It was because language activist folks here made a fuss when the Govt did not bother before.

Typical that someone in power takes the credit for ordinary Irish folks sufferings and deeds.

The fact was the Irish govt was happy to have accepted second best for the language. They were embarassed into this.

Heroes are often duvets, cover alls.

But job done, in future when the folks look back they will see Bertie the champion! few will question.

because ye are mostly boings! who read and think and act and conclude for their own end.
