It's nice that they are supporting the Irish language, now if we could just get them to stop disguising their city masts as drain pipes and chimenys in case people complain about having them on the roof of their building we'd be motoring.

Vodafone globalised brand everywhere

O2 same

3 Similar being from Hong Kong except a truly evil company

Tesco Mobile lol!

Meteor, Eircoms arm owned by By Eircom and thus by STT and by default the Singapore Government.

Meteor 100% Irish gaelgori me ar$e, I see this as green (as in irish) washing to try and distinguish themselves as "Irish" from the rest. I have more respect for Vodafone who has sponsored Clare GAA and now the Dubs as having contributed to our "culture" than Meteor have by promoting a dead language whos only existence is possible by pouring in state money to the jabba the hut it has become. How many morons will go fiddling with their phones and set it to Irish by mistake and not be able to set it back as they won't under stand the commands in Gaelic!

Meteor are using this as a stunt to try and emphasise their "Irishness" when they are no more Irish than Barrack Hussein Bin Osama II. Can I dumb it down any further?
No. I think you're about as dumb as it gets.
