Madam

Further to the report in your edition of May 20th, "Minister insists on Irish version of Dingle", it may be worth noting that Dingle is a name which has been in continuous use for more than 400 years, though often in forms such as Dingle i Couch or Dinglecoche, which reflect what is perhaps the most "correct" name, Daingean Uí Chúis (variously described as the fortress of O'Cush or Hussey).
