    What are they for?
    Traffic conditions, weather conditions, travel times, CRI alerts, general messages (at the moment most of them around here are just display general messages about covid, staying at home, washing hands, etc)

    Thurles - Dúrlas - Dúrlas Éile
    Manorhamilton - Cluainín - Cuainín Uí Ruairc
    Ballina - Béal an Átha - Béal Átha an Fheadha
    Swords - Sord - Sord Cholmcille
    Derry - Doire - Doire Cholmcille (Doire is colloquial however, the same way people say Carrick or Ballagh for Carrick on Suir and Ballaghaderreen respectively)
    Naas - An Nás - Nás na Rí (or older ríogh)
    Claregalway - Baile Chláir - Baile an Chláir - Baile Chláir na Gaillimhe (local Irish speakers called it Baile an Chláir)
    Knock - An Cnoc - Cnoc Mhuire: the latter is always used in colloquial Irish, and from roughly Galway to Dublin northwards (when Irish was spoken natively in the east) Cnoc sounds like Croc.
    Moate - An Móta - Móta Ghráinne Óige
    Cashel - An Caiseal - Caiseal Mumhan

    And I'm sure there are dozens more examples of this. However, names do evolve. Boyle was commonly called Abbeyboyle until the early 1800s. In Irish itself, names are amalgamated over time, eg. Inis Barr a' Chuain - Inish Barracháin, Tulach Uisce - Tuilsce - Tulsk.

    True - but only one of those towns that you list is in a Breac Gaeltacht.
    Which does show how quickly this phenomena occurs.

    An Irish Language Plan has been approved for Gaeltacht An tEachreidh.

    The region spans Annaghdown, Claregalway and Carnmore on the east side of the River Corrib.

    That's interesting - I had heard that part of the motorway was closed this morning and I was wondering what was going on.
