  11. In 2003…. • We will do all we can to secure language volunteers for all 54 official languages for the delegations participating... • BUT Ireland is a small country and there are no guarantees so the more members of the delegation that speak English, the easier it will be for everyone!

  12. Language Services • We are delighted to be welcoming so many delegations with different cultures and languages to Ireland in 2003 and aim to make them all feel as welcome as humanly possible • As we say in Ireland... Céad Míle Fáilte!
