Hurray! Ní rachaidh éinne ar strae arís ariamh

Tá an Brainse Logainmneacha agus Fiontar DCU (ár gcairde a thug ceann de na suíomhanna is ansa liom dúinn .i. Focal.ie) tar éisBunachar Logainmneacha na hÉireann/Placenames Database of Ireland a chur ar fáil dúinn. As seo amach ba chóir nach mbeidh aon deacracht teacht ar leagan Gaeilge údarásach de logainm ar bith. Hurrah!

Ní bheidh aon léithscéal anois ag na turasóirí leisciúla a deireann nach féidir leo An Daingean a aimsiú agus iad “ag déanamh” Ciarraí. I would dearly love some evidence, video footage preferably, of real live tourists saying they couldn’t find An Daingean because of the name change. Or was the name changed? I don’t know. I don’t believe any tourist managed to miss it; it was vested interests in certain communities who were painting these scurrilous depictions of tourists to the Kingdom. Seriously, once you’re on that road out of Tralee there’s not much else between you and the Atlantic. (Mo leithscéal Muintir Dún Chaoin!) Granted if you were afraid of heights and decided to close your eyes as you reached the Conor Pass and no-one told you that it was safe to open them, you might miss it.
