|Anagaire is the only official name. The anglicized spelling Annagry has no official status.|
The Irish and official name for Annagry is Anagaire, which in turn derives from Áth na gCoire meaning "ford of the whirlpools".
There are 2,354 people living in the Anagaire ED and 55% of whom are native Irish speakers. Annagry is in the Gaeltacht region which means the official language of the area is Irish. However, the use of the language has been in decline since the 1950s. Despite this, it boasts a successful Irish language college in the summer months which runs courses for students from English-speaking areas of the country. It's known as Coláiste na Rosann.
Annagry has a long history of emigration, much like the rest of County Donegal|. In the 1950s, a large number of locals left the area to work in countries.
In the first week of June, the Annual Festival takes place, when those who have left often return to spend some time in Sharkeys Bar particularly which has been run by the Sharkey family since 1888 and is still the main watering hole for many of the locals to this day. Caisleáin Óir hotel, (formerly Jack's Bar) and Duffy's are some of the other public houses in Annagry.
