People of Dingle delighted town’s bilingual name is reinstated on road signs

That’s according to Fergus O’Flaherty, a Dingle publican and Chairman of Coiste Dingle Daingean Ui Chuis. Work began on erecting the Dingle / Daingean Uí Chúis signs three weeks ago, bringing an end to a nine year controversy. The National Roads Authority says it’s expected work will be completed by the beginning of May. The town’s name was controversially changed to An Daingean in 2004 under the Official Languages Act. 


In 2006 a plebiscite on a proposal to change the name to Dingle / Daingean Uí Chúis was passed; but it wasn’t until July 2011 that the name change was signed into law. Fergus O’Flaherty says common sense has finally prevailed.
