Usage[edit]

This template displays an English-language version of a place name in a Gaeltacht area and optionally and English-language translation of the Irish name.

Example:

  • Code: {{Gaeltacht place name|Dingle|The Fortress}}
  • Result: meaning "The Fortress", anglicised as Dingle

The second parameter is optional. If it is not included then the article will be added to Category:Untranslated Irish place names. Example:

  • Code: {{Gaeltacht place name|Dingle}}
  • Result: anglicised as Dingle

An additional optional parameter is no_translate. This can be invoked in order to stop unwanted pages being added to Category:Untranslated Irish place names.

For example, if the Irish- and English-language versions mean the same then there is no point in repeating this information. However, it would be inappropriate to add the article to Category:Untranslated Irish place names. In order to suppress, an article being automatically added to Category:Untranslated Irish place names, simply add no_translate=true when using the template. Example:

  • Code: '''Oileán Thoraigh''' ({{Gaeltacht place name|Tory Island|no_translate=true}})
  • Result: Oileán Thoraigh (anglicised as Tory Island)
