So a native Irish speaker from Kerry Gaeltacht was told by his employer in Cork that he wasn't to speak to other staff in Irish, only in Ireland ;)

Surely there is a law covering this.

It is just nonsensical to ban the speaking of Irish anywhere in Ireland. The owner of that pub, if he really did that, has to be a jackass.

First it was smoking...
http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_MEMO-11-349_en.htm
[extract]
Total bans on smoking in all enclosed public places and workplaces, including bars and restaurants are in place in Ireland, the UK, Greece, Spain and Hungary. Italy, Sweden, Malta, Latvia, Finland, Slovenia, France, the Netherlands, Cyprus and Poland, have introduced smoke-free legislation, however, allowing for special enclosed smoking rooms.

Now it's Gaelic.

I wonder when it will be drinking. :beerchug:
That would put a damper on St. Paddy's Day.
