Irish is recognised by the Constitution of Ireland as the national and first official language of Ireland (English being the other official language). Almost all adjectives in Irish can be used either predicatively or attributively. A predicative adjective is one that forms a part of the predicate, like red in the sentence The car is red. An attributive adjective directly modifies a noun, as in the red car. A predicate adjective in Irish does not inflect. An attributive adjective mostly follows the noun and is inflected.
