Irish Counties - As Gaeilge to English

Postby brickwalls » Fri Aug 20, 2010 1:47 am

Not sure where this would be best put, however I have noticed that the LDS are particularly fond of using both English and Irish for the County names, and sometimes the records which are in one section aren't in the other. So in an effort to make it easier for people to research on the LDS Pilot site, here is a list of Irish counties in English, and their respective Gaeilge names. Also included is the Province and whether it is Northern Ireland or the Republic.

Antrim - Aontroim - Ulster - NI
Armagh - Ard Mhacha - Ulster - NI
Carlow - Ceatharlach - Leinster - ROI
Cavan - An Cabhán - Ulster - ROI
Clare - An Clár - Munster - ROI
Cork - Corcaigh - Munster - ROI
Donegal - Dún na nGall - Ulster - ROI
Down - An Dún - Ulster - NI
Dublin - Áth Cliath - Leinster - ROI
Fermanagh - Fear Manach - Ulster - NI
Galway - Gaillimh - Connact - ROI
Kerry - Ciarraí - Munster - ROI
Kildare - Cill Dara - Leinster - ROI
Kilkenny - Cill Chainnigh - Leinster - ROI
Laois - Laois - Leinster - ROI
Leitrim - Liatroim - Connacht - ROI
Limerick - Luimneach - Munster - ROI
Londonderry/Derry - Doire - Ulster - NI
Longford - An Longfort - Leinster - ROI
Louth - Lú - Leinster - ROI
Mayo - Maigh Eo - Connacht - ROI
Meath - An Mhí - Leinster - ROI
Monaghan - Muineachán - Ulster - ROI
Offaly - Uíbh Fhailí - Leinster - ROI (County Offaly is also referred to as Kings County)
Roscommon - Ros Comáin - Connacht - ROI
Sligo - Sligeach - Connacht - ROI
Tipperary - Tiobraid Árann - Munster - ROI
Tyrone - Tír Eoghain - Ulster - NI
Waterford - Port Láirge - Munster - ROI
Westmeath - An Iarmhí - Leinster - ROI
Wexford - Loch Garman - Leinster - ROI
Wicklow - Cill Mhantáin - Leinster - ROI
Non omnia moriar - Not all of me will die
Quite a nice thought when you consider what we're all doing

A person should have an opinion on everything, It becomes tact whether you reveal that opinion or not.
