The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

THE de­ci­sion to post­pone a vote on chang­ing the of­fi­cial name of En­nis­crone has been greeted with dis­ap­point­ment. Last June the County Coun­cil agreed to hold a plebiscite to change the town’s name from Inishcrone to En­nis­crone in English and Inis Crab­hann to Inis Eis­cir Ab­hann in Ir­ish. The Coun­cil has re­ceived le­gal ad­vice that the plebiscite should be de­ferred pend­ing new leg­is­la­tion which would stream­line the process for chang­ing pla­ce­names. En­nis­crone Pla­ce­name Com­mit­tee say they are dis­ap­pointed given a ten­ta­tive date for a plebiscite had been agreed. “Our sole fo­cus is to en­sure that the views of the peo­ple of En­nis­crone are heard and that a plebiscite takes place at the ear­li­est pos­si­ble op­por­tu­nity.” said a spokesper­son.
