a bit sensitive on our UK heritage then? It’s like ‘Translations’ all over.
I hold with the DorSETT pronunciation. I would have said a majority of (dubliners) used that.
I like the fact that Henry Moore, Earl of Drogheda gave his complete title to all the streets in the city centre (Drogheda street became Sackville St*, became O’Connell St. Of lane became Henry place).
* Same place Dorset St came from. Lord Lieutenant at the time; Lionel Cranfield Sackville, Duke of Dorset.
