Draft Placenames Order: County Sligo

An Coiste Logainmneacha (the Placenames Committee) intends to advise the Minister of State with responsibility for Gaeilge, the Gaeltacht and the Islands, Seán Kyne T.D., to declare by order the Irish language version of the placenames of County Sligo. Before giving its advice, the Committee wishes to receive recommendations from the public regarding the draft order, including the Irish versions. The draft order has been published today for this purpose.

The draft order can be accessed on the website of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht here and on the website of the Placenames Database of Ireland here.

The Irish versions in the draft order are based on the work of the Placenames Branch in the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. The recommendations will be considered in advance of advice being provided to the Minister of State with regard to the placenames order.

Recommendations should be sent in submission form to the Placenames Branch at logainmneacha@ahg.gov.ie or at the postal address Joyce House, 8–11 Lombard Street East, Dublin 2, before 31st July 2019.
