Gmail adds Gaeilge (Irish) to list of supported languages

The folks at Gmail are upping supported languages once again, toady adding Gaeilge (Irish) to the list. With Gmail now available in 71 languages, around 95% of the world's internet population is represented. Gaeilge joins the likes of Cherokee, Mongolian, Zulu, and many others.

Irish, in case you didn't know, is the national and first language of the Republic of Ireland. It's taught to all schoolchildren, and it's spoken daily in the Gaeltacht, so for many Irish people it sparks memories of a shared history—from summers on the Western coast to the story of Peig and the Blasket Islands.

If you're ready to get your Irish on, just pop open your Gmail language settings to make the switch.
