Irish also known as Irish Gaelic, is a Goidelic language of the Indo-European language family, originating in Ireland and historically spoken by the Irish people. Irish is now spoken natively by a small minority of the Irish population – mostly in Gaeltacht areas – but also plays an important symbolic role in the life of the Irish state, and is used across the country in a variety of media, personal contexts and social situations. It enjoys constitutional status as the national and first official language of the Republic of Ireland and it is an official language of the European Union. Irish is also an officially recognised minority language in Northern Ireland.

Irish Gaelic language

The history of the Irish Gaelic language begins in Central Europe in the 5th century B.C., where a new tribe was taking Europe by storm - the Celts. This tribe was a hospitable group, placing much importance on family and friends - and widely known for their strength and valor in combat, and strong sense of culture in time of peace. Winning battle after battle, the Celts eventually conquered most of modern Europe; occupying lands from the Iberian peninsula in the west, to the Scottish highlands in the north, spanning Europe to the Black Sea in the East, and touching as far south as Central Italy.

Learning Irish!
For many people, learning Irish is a way to connect with their roots. Irish has a very long written history and is a very colorful and rich language. Irish has official recognition in Ireland, although most people speak English most of the time, and is learned by many folks of Irish descent in the UK, Canada, the US, Australia and New Zealand. Also called Irish Gaelic, it is one of the few surviving Celtic languages and is closely related to Scottish Gaelic and Manx.
