Irish language – Wikipedia

Fascinating page from the Wikipedia on the Irish Language. Starting from an overview of the different dialects found around the country to the history of the language it finished by discussing the Irish language used today.

In spite of all the efforts since Ireland achieved independence (some critics claim because of those efforts) the Irish language is in rapid and perhaps terminal decline… The death of the Gaeltachtaí would make a break forever between Ireland’s cultural past and identity and its future. All sides… …agree that such a loss would be a cultural tragedy of monumental scale.
