Dyirringany (Djiringanj) is an extinct Australian Aboriginal language of New South Wales. It is not listed in Bowern (2011), but the people are ethnically Yuin. The only attestation of the language are manuscripts and a grammar dating from 1902.[2] It is sometimes classified with Thawa as Southern Coastal Yuin.[1]
