  • Alternative (and preferred by native speakers) name for Dun na nGall, or Donegal.

    Tir Chonaill (Tyrconnell) is named for the clan who used to rule it before the infamous "Flight of the Earls", as is its neighboring county, Tyrone (Tir Eoin).

    Dun na nGall, in contrast, means 'fort of the foreigners'.
