Patois translator to take up Irish position at National Library



Patois is the Irish language of the South, but as the nation is divided into Irish-speaking counties, it is also spoken by people of Irish descent in all parts of the country.

The National Library has announced it will offer Patois translators for English-speaking users.

The Library is a joint initiative between the Irish government, the Department of Education, Arts, Heritage and Science and the Irish Language Council.

The National Library will have one Irish translator for English and another for Irish, and will provide a platform for new language and cultural exchanges between the two languages.

The project will be funded by the National Arts Council of Ireland.

“We’re keen to create a new and inclusive space for all people of the Irish Commonwealth to engage with one another, and we’re delighted to be working with the National Library to make this happen,” said Claire Darragh, the Library’s Executive Director.

The initiative comes as a wave of social media activism has taken hold in the last year.

In May, the Irish prime minister, Leo Varadkar, signed a bill to introduce a register for Irish speakers to make it easier to find employment in the Irish-language world.

In July, a petition calling for the return of the word patois to the Irish lexicon garnered more than 12,000 signatures.

The national library will also offer free language classes to the local community.

This will help to promote the language’s economic viability and increase the number of bilinguals in the community.
