Irish placenames in Kia Satnav

I own a Kia Niro which has a built-in satnav that, according to Kia, used map data from Here until recently. The most recent updates though appear to have silently switched to using TomTom map data without informing users.

This has had one or two consequences including missing and erroneous speed limit data, but for me in Ireland the most annoying one is that now all place names and street names are now in Irish.

I know from reading some previous discussions here regarding the same thing happening in the AmiGO Android app that setting the system language to English (UK) instead of English (Ireland) solves the problem, but on the built-in satnav only has one setting, English and there is no way to change the displayed language on the maps to English.

Any ideas?

    As I said above, English, there is no Irish option, nor is there a choice between English (Ireland) or English (UK).
