Sending SMS with accents

Hi, I'm trying to set up my blackberry so that I can send accent on letters in a text message. For example in the Irish language there are some names with á or ú. As Irish doesn't seem to be a language available is there some way I can do this as if the set input language is English the accents can be selected by holding down the letter and scrolling through the options, but when I send the message, they immediately disappear and do to appear on the recipients message from me. Thanks
