Are the Irish laws written in the Irish language these days? Or was there any moment in history when the laws were written/translated in the Irish language?

1 Answer 1


The Constitution is bilingual, and the Irish version take precedence in case of conflict. Some Acts such as the Adoption Act 2010 are passed in English and Irish, but some are English only. Most are bilingual. I don't think any are passed only in Irish, but that's based on manual inspection.

  • Thanks, and how many laws are approximately passed in English only? (as a percentage)
