Tirlán is here to stay after a vote by Glanbia Co-op yesterday.
There had been some controversy with some gaeilgeoirí pointing out that the new name which combines two Irish words was missing a fada.
But at a meeting yesterday Glanbia Co-op shareholders voted overwhelmingly in favour of the new name which they’d revealed at the end of August.
KCLR Farming Correspondent Matt O’Keeffe says it’s a brand name that borrows from Irish but isn’t bound by it so the issue of the fadas wasn’t seen as important to the vote.
