Official languages in the EU

I wonder if Ireland will change its official EU notice-language from Gaelic to English? I bet the only reason the Irish chose Gaelic is because English was already covered. Only 35% of people in Ireland can speak Gaelic (more people in Ireland speak Polish). If the Irish Republic wants the majority of its citizens who speak English to have access to EU documents, they would need the EU to keep English as one of its official languages.

I wonder if the EU rules allow countries to change their notice language? If they don't, I bet the rules will allow it soon.
