Ainm as Gaeilge?[edit]

I have inserted Mulcahy's name in Irish, however I am unsure if that is the correct spelling. Much obliged to anyone who can verify if its the correct spelling. Cliste 00:09, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

I've changed it slightly to that which is used in the Dáil record of the time. Basicly it involves changing Ua to Ó although this was a matter of 'free variation'. I've also changed Maolcatha to Maolchatha which reflects the modern spelling. If we are to use Maolcatha then we need to show the pre spelling reform mutation mark, which would be really hard here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.158.46.151 (talk) 02:12, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Succession boxes[edit]

User:BrownHairedGirl changed the succession boxes as an example for a previous discussion. This discussion was inconclusive and no other TD's succession boxes were changed to this format, so I have changed it back to the conventional usage per all other TDs. Snappy (talk) 19:57, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

So you agree that the edit summary "added template" is misleading, and in no way explained your edit? --Domer48'fenian' 16:18, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
I did add a template, I was adding the same template to everyone in it, on adding it to this article, I took the opportunity to tidy up the successions boxes, to bring back into line with the current standard for all other TDs, I neglected to mention this part in my edit summary, it was not intentionally misleading.

I did no say it was intentionally misleading, only that it did not reflect the edit that was made. This is supported by both you first and second post. Thanks, --Domer48'fenian' 13:59, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
