What's in a name?

The name Eirebloc is derived from Éire (pronounced air’-a), being the Irish language name for Ireland.

The name "Éire" has been used on Irish postage stamps since 1922, on all Irish coinage including the Euro coins and on passports since 1937.

As a language, Irish, was the most widely spoken language on the island of Ireland until the 19th century, but now remains spoken only in small pockets of the country called Gaeltachtaí. Fortunately, one of those few remaining Gaeltachtaí is located just 10km west of Eirebloc.

So for us, the name Eirebloc is a small but important reminder of the origins of the company and the culture of our surroundings.
