What's in a name? - The 'Aviva' Stadium
Renaming Lansdowne - The Irish Times - Thu, Feb 26, 2009
I don't know if this has been discussed here before but the above letter from today's IT is very instructive to all those who would cling to the traditionalist view of retaining the 'Landsdowne' title for the new rugby/soccer stadium.
Do you agree with the renaming? Should names be retained because of their original titles or the fact that history was made when they 'traded' under those names. I often think of the O'Duffy section in Clones and would they retain that if refurbished...I wouldn't want names changed myself but if some company offered a substantial sum I think I could be persuaded to amend that particular memorium.
