For the same reason Bono and U2 do.

Perhaps because Irish isn't a language? (not counting Irish Gaelic, if that's even a language...)

I recently had a dream that my dad died and my mum spent the life insurance payout on a new Indian dad, who told me to convert to Judaism, even though people usually change religion in September.

Derigiberble would win in a fight against any UGer, n00b or not, just because most people on the site can't help but love him/her.

Dude. This is why I love society.

And also, I've never been sarcastic in my life.

I like to go to the playground, and watch all the little children jump and run around. But they don't know that I'm only using blanks.
obvious troll is obvious

this can not possibly be for real.
When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you, but because in that brief moment, while the coin is in the air, you suddenly know what you're hoping for.
I know it's probably a troll, but being the token CR mick, I'll bite...

In our constitution it states that Irish is our first language. However the literacy rate is very poor and most of us only have English. A lot of people can't even sing the national anthem.

We're required to study it in school. However, there's arguments that the lessons don't teach it with practical a application in mind.

There are places where it's spoken exclusively (Gaeltacht) and some of us go there to improve language skills. Most, if not all, Gaeltacht residents speak English fluently.

We have tv in Irish. That includes original comedy and drama and stuff that we get over-dubbed (South Park is Irish is weird by the way).

I don't think Phil Lynott had very much Irish, considering how little he cared about school. He had a very strong love for old Celtic stories though and that influenced his lyrics ie:Róisín Dubh (Black Rose)

In short: Most Irish people can only speak English.
Our music wouldn't get global recognition if we didn't sing in English.

Now that that's done...

How to achieve Frank Zappa's guitar tone:

Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.
