Irlandalingvo kaj Sorĉarto

...de la blogo, From the Balcony, de Máirtín Ó Muilleoir:

The DUP often view the Irish language as the work of the devil and who can blame them when An Ghaeilge remains banned in courts in the north of Ireland — a ban now being challenged by West Belfast solicitor Michael Flannigan.

While banned in Belfast, the Irish language was permitted in courts in America as far back as 1688 — though Anne Glover whose statements in Irish were translated for the infamous Salem witchcraft trials was not particularly grateful. After getting a court-appointed translator to translate her ramblings into English, the Irish servant woman was hanged.
