Church of Scientology attempting to recruit in the Irish Gaeltacht - 2016-08-31
It appears the controversial Church of Scientology may be widening its recruitment in Ireland to people in the Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking area) and other Irish-speakers throughout the country with attempts made by a sub-company of the church to translate their educational and information supplements into Irish.
According to Tuairisc.ie, the subcompany – Golden Era Productions – recently wrote to a number of Irish translators looking for people qualified and interested in reproducing their programs in Irish. The company is not believed to have been forthcoming in informing those they contacted about their connection with Scientology, however.
"In addition to the many languages we already provide we will also now be making our materials available in Gaelic and thus we are looking for qualified and interested translators," the company wrote.
