Irish, used by 70,000 people, has become the official language in Brussels

Irish is one of the three current Celtic languages, along with Scottish and the Isle of Man, and has the constitutional status of “first official language” in the Republic of Ireland.

There are currently about 1.6 million Irish speakers, of whom an estimated 70,000 use the language daily. Most live in the west of Ireland, in the region officially called Gaeltacht.

Irish Minister of State for Europe Thomas Byrne said the change gave hope for a possible revival of the Irish language.
