…de la Irish Times:

The official Irish language names of almost 100,000 towns, streets and post offices will be listed on a new website launched today.

Native speakers around the world will be able to log on to to find the translation of place names nationwide.

Visitors can play sound files of the pronunciation of place names in counties Waterford, Galway and Donegal, while many areas are accompanied by archival records.

Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs Éamon Ó Cuív said the site was an excellent resource for anybody who wanted to search for the correct Irish name for places in Ireland...
