Usage[edit]

This template displays an Irish-language version of a place name and optionally and English-language translation of the Irish name. Example:

  • Code: {{Irish derived place name|Srath Bán|the white riverside land}}
  • Result: from Irish: Srath Bán, meaning "the white riverside land"

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

  • Code: {{Irish derived place name|Srath Bán}}
  • Result: from Irish: Srath Bán

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 page 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: '''Whitehead''' ({{Irish derived place name|An Cionn Bán|no_translate=yes}})
  • Result: Whitehead (from Irish: An Cionn Bán)
