Roads with English and Irish names

Postby foophoof » Sun May 26, 2019 8:23 pm

I was reading the road naming policy and while it seems to indicate that you should default to English for roads with both an English and an Irish name on the signs, I wasn't able to figure out if I should add the Irish name as an alternate name or not. Is there some kind of best practice for this?

No harm adding it as an alternative.

Could you share some examples?

I agree that there's no harm in adding it as an alternative name, but it's certainly not required. We have plenty of roads missing names in one language, without having to look after two :)

In all areas, we should put whatever primary language is on road signs. In most places, this is English, but in Gaeltacht (Irish language) areas, we should put the Irish name, because it's the only name that appears.
