Submissions sought on Dublin Placenames

Under the provisions of Part 5 of the Official Languages Act 2003, An Coimisiún Logainmneacha (the Placenames Commission) intends to advise the Minister for Community, Equality and Gaeltacht Affairs to declare the Irish language version of the placenames of County Dublin.

Before giving its advice, the Commission wishes to receive recommendations from the public regarding the draft order, the Irish versions included.  So that the public may study the draft order the Commission is launching a draft of the proposed order. 
The draft can be accessed on the website of the Placenames Database of Ireland. 

The Irish versions in the draft are based on the work of the Placenames Branch in the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs.  The Commission will study all the recommendations in cooperation with the Branch  before it advises the Minister.

Recommendations should be sent in submission form to The Secretary, An Coimisiún Logainmneacha, 43-49, Mespil Road, Dublin, 4, before 26th November 2010.
