By the start of the Irish Revolution the Irish language had been in a state of decline since the 1600's and lacked many of the words needed to found a new state, such as "Republic" and "President". This episode takes a look at some of the oddities that arose in creating these new words as Gaeilge.
The Irish language didn't always fare well after independence but today is has a strong presence online.
