"Dingle is a brand name." Misc. (What people have said) 5/1/2005
“If I was speaking Irish with Paidi O Se or any of those we'd always call it An Daingean.
But if I was in New York or somewhere and somebody asked me where I was from, I'd say near Dingle. Dingle is a brand name. It's known the world over. The people around Dingle still refer to it as An Daingean. The two versions should be around – bilingually everywhere. Let it be referred to locally as An Daingean. But I think Dingle is too valuable a brand name to be discarded.
