The Service will be printed and conducted in Irish, with a parallel printed English translation. Douglas Hyde, whose father was a Church of Ireland Rector, was both a poet and an academic renowned for his love of Irish. He was a founder of the Gaelic League in 1893. In 1904, a Church of Ireland editorial supported the aims of the Gaelic League,saying, ‘If we insist upon our right to be recognised as Irish people we must be prepared to accept along with the honour conferred by the title the duties which it involves. One of these duties is the preservation of the historic Irish language’.

(2018 marks the 80th anniversary of the Office of the President of Ireland being established. In 1938, Dr Douglas Hyde was inaugurated and he set a precedent which has been followed ever since by choosing to take his oath of office in the Irish language. On Sunday, 7th October 2018, at 6.30pm, the first monthly Irish language Service in the Cathedral will give thanks for the love of learning, love of people and love of language which Dr Hyde epitomised).
