What do they see through Irish-Irish eyes that is different? Can you give some examples?
Are the cars a different colour? Or shape? Are the mountains higher or lower? Are roads longer, shorter, wider, smoother or rougher? Are Trump's tweets intelligent and cultured? Do traffic jams disappear?
If you don't know that the world is viewed differently by speakers of different languages then you are perhaps more ignorant than I thought you were.Can you give some concrete examples of how that works in practice in the case of Irish and this nation?
The children in school - what changes occur in their way of living by learning Irish? In their families' way of living? Are the relationships among pupils in Gaelscoileanna different to those between other young people up and down their streets?
