Irish has been an official working language since 2007 -

But it's more complicated than that: Irish has been a "treaty language"
since 1973, which means it was official in some (but not all) contexts.
And since 2007 there is a derogation which says not all documents have to
be translated into Irish; this derogation will end by 2022.

There's a fairly good summary at
with some discussion of the arguments around the status of English a
few paragraphs below.

Moderate or rough becoming rough or very rough. Rain or showers. Good,
