Irish received renewed recognition on January 1st, for the first time it
is an official working language of the EU.  From now on, EU documents
and communiques will have to be translated directly, and Ireland's MEPs
and Commissioner will be able to speak it during official business.
Irish is the only Celtic language so far to have gained EU official and
working status.
