Scientologists are looking for Irish speakers, and we're not sure why

The Church of Scientology is attempting to recruit Gaelgoirs in Canada.

Oddly enough this isn't the first time the controversial church has looked to recruit heavily amongst the Irish.

In August emails were sent to Irish staff working in universities across New York, Copenhagen and Denmark, the email was from the translations unit of the Church.

It indicated that they were in the midst of a huge translation project consisting of 5.5million words.

They now seem to be expanding their attempts and they're reaching out to Irish teachers in Nova Scotia.

John Prendergast is currently working in Nova Scotia as part of the ICUF Irish Language program, he got the call to help out with translations and after doing a bit of research decided to go ahead.

Speaking to Irish Central John said that he didn’t believe the translation project was a bad thing and that we should have respect for as many beliefs and spiritualities as possible.

The Church of Scientology has one location in Ireland but it's not officially recognised as a religion here.
