Taking to Twitter to share the news, the Mayhem singer said:

"I hope this will be a kickstart for a lot of us to begin embracing Irish as part of everyday life", she said.

"I got involved as I wanted to represent people like me who feel embarrassed to even try speak it.

"I think together we can find a bit of confidence and a lot of pride. This is OUR teanga, our tongue, our language. Let’s use it. Anois!''

As it turns out, Carol wants to learn a cúpla focal too - in exchange for some Welsh lessons.

Countdown reboot for TG4, anyone?
