An Irish Gaelic translation of "The Hobbit" is due out later this month.

geordie at the LotR Plaza shared this link (an article published in anticipation of the Irish translation):

http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/l ... 2/0317/1224313474042.html

Dr. Tom Hogan, son of Professor Jeremiah Hogan (who was a friend of Tolkien's in Ireland), discusses Tolkien's visits to his family and provides some quotes from formerly unknown letters.

I just read in the Companion and Guide that Tolkien didn't like Gaelic at all (but he loved Ireland and the Irish). In spite of that I hope this translation does well anyway :)

The publisher Michael Everson's interest in Toklien is not just a passing one. His Wikipedia entry states

"Among the scripts "encoded" in the CSUR, Shavian and Deseret were eventually formally adopted into Unicode; two other conscripts under consideration are Tolkien's scripts of Tengwar and Cirth."
