Dear my Irish brothers and sisters,

My address is :-

"Room No.26, Fort Street, North Point, Hong Kong"

Please kindly help as I need to submit my translated address to the Irish authority for some licensing matters. Many thanks.

I don't think a letter addressed to you in Irish would ever arrive!!! What possible Irish authority could ever want a Hong Kong address in Irish rather than in English? No post would ever, ever arrive for you, would it?

However I aim to please occasionally, so here's a translation if you're still curious:

Seomra 26, Sráid an Dúin, An Rinn Thuaidh, Hong Kong.

Sorry, I don't know what Hong Kong would be in Irish.

Thanks M?ire and Laighneach. I think they would hold this for record only.
