An Irish village has cleared the latest hurdle in its campaign to change its names to the Fort of the Harlot.
The loose translation of its old Irish title means “the stronghold of immoral women”. Many residents in the village of Doon in County Limerick reportedly prefer the name of Dun Bleisce, translated as the Fort of the Harlot. However, locals said the name referred to a strong woman and local women were noted for their beauty and culture.
