An overwhelming number of those polled in the Dingle - An Daingean place-name plebiscite have voted in favour of retaining the name Dingle.

Results just announced show that 1,005 people voted for Dingle and 70 voted against.

The ballot drew a response of 89.6% from more than twelve hundred residents deemed eligible to vote.

The official name of the west Kerry town was changed from Dingle to An Daingean in 2005 under legislation governing placenames in Gaeltacht areas.
