image for Wexford Ends Scourge Of "Silly" Estate Names

An Irish council has established a committee to monitor the naming of housing developments.

Members of Wexford County Council and interested parties from the community have produced a booklet of advice, and the committee meets weekly to discuss proposed development names.

A spokesman said: "We have been receiving some silly applications. A developer clears a wooded area to build an estate and then wants to call it Willow Creek! How daft is that?

"From now on all names will have to be approved by the committee and members are determined that they should be appropriate.

"We just approved a new development called Feckthebrits Fields, for example, and people are beginning to move into Gobshite Manors."
