On Sunday, 18 February International Mother Languages Day was marked around the world. Let's find out what it means to kids in Ireland.
To celebrate the event we gathered kids from across the country to share their thoughts and feelings. Farsi, Gaeilge, German, Tamil, Zulu, Ndebele, Urdu, Russian and Marathi all in the one zoom room.
RTÉ news2day spoke to our friends at Mother Tongues to explain what it was all about.
