The Irish version - available at www.youtube.ie - will prioritise Irish-related videos and comments to give users what the company says will be a "local experience" of the site.

Until now, the featured pages users first saw when they logged on to the site were heavily skewed to US tastes.

YouTube also unveiled eight other national sites for Brazil, Britain, France, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland and Spain.
