Church of Scientology attempting to recruit in the Irish Gaeltacht

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, 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.

It's not the people that they want. They're going after the leprechauns, whose pots of gold are mighty tempting to the church that isn't.

I have spent a lot of time in the Gaelic speaking areas of Ireland. The Scientologists had better be careful. If you piss of those people they won't think twice about chopping you in little pieces. But then they pray over your remains before they leave so I guess that makes it okay in their minds.

I hope they don't fall for that cult.
