This is what the sentence made me think of: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Joyce_Tower_and_Museum
Do Irish speakers ever refer to Baile Átha Cliath as "Dublin," or I guess "Duibhlinn?" I'm sure there are many Irish place names not included so far in these lessons, but I am just wondering if the well known name Dublin is more common in modern conversation, even among Irish speakers. Also, what is the meaning of Baile Átha Cliath?
Bleá Cliath or Baile Átha Cliath are as well known to Irish speaker in Ireland as "Dublin", and are entirely natural to say for Irish speakers. It's possible that other placenames that mightn't be as well known would be referred to by the English name, but not Baile Átha Cliath.
I have across the term Duibhlinneach for a Dubliner - it's a bit easier to say than Baile Átha Cliathach. The band is called na Dubliners.
