THE Church of Scientology appear to be trying to recruit Irish speakers to expand its church in Ireland.

A sub-company of the church has advertised for people in the Gaeltacht and other Irish-speakers throughout Ireland to translate their educational and information supplements into Irish.

It has been reported by that Golden Era Productions, an organisation operated by the Church of Scientology that produces promotional material for the church's membership, recently wrote to a number of Irish translators looking for people to reproduce their programs in Irish.

"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 is understood that among the material they want to translate is the church's views on human rights as well as training videos.

The Church of Scientology is believed to have just a few hundred members in Ireland. It has just one location in Ireland, on Abbey Street in Dublin.
