Statutory Instruments General Placenames

Most of the Placenames Orders relate to individual counties but there are also Orders confirming the official names of provinces, counties, centres of population, districts and Gaeltacht areas.

It should be noted that Section 48 of the Environment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act , 2011  amends a provision of Statutory Instrument 872 of 2004 - The Placenames (Ceantair Ghaeltachta) Order 2004 – in relation to the placename An Daingean.

This amendment confirms that Daingean Uí Chúis in Irish and Dingle in English are now the official placenames of An Daingean, as it was heretofore.
