Interesting Fact

The words "yes" and "no" don't exist in Irish. If asked "would you like a coffee?", you should say "I would like a coffee," or "I wouldn't like a coffee."


Irish is a Celtic language spoken in Ireland where it holds the constitutional status of national and official language. It is also an official language of the European Union. Irish is spoken by 140 000 people as a native language and by a further 1 million as a second language.

Scottish Gaelic and Irish are closely related. Speakers can understand each other to some degree with a little patience and time.

British English has borrowed many words from Irish over time. Common loanwords include “banshee”, “craic”, “bog” and “whiskey” (from “uisce beatha”– water of life).
