Fair use rationale for Image:Dinnyrte.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Dinnyrte.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

I think the Irish version of the name should be included, it is used in English too, féach seo — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:01, 4 March 2012 (UTC)

and another source — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:06, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Per WP:IMOS: "An Irish version of a person's English-language name may be given in the first sentence of the lead of an article on that person if it is a well-known, commonly-used name for that person. If there is no commonly-used Irish version, it is not appropriate or encyclopaedic to "invent" such names, as this constitutes original research. Also, the mere fact that an Irish name appears in certain sources, such as databases, is not sufficient evidence that it is commonly used." This applies here, as McGinley is not commonly known by his Irish name (unlike say Eamon O Cuiv), and also the fact that his Irish name appears in some sources don't not prove anything.

Well can it go somewhere else in the article because as you see it is used? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:22, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
