Question About Aer Lingus!

Wed Jun 08, 2005 5:39 pm

In Feb 2004 I transited by BCN coming from SVQ. I loved spotting all the planes around. One ting that surprised me was an Aer Lingus A321. Usually Aer Lingus planes have names of Saints....except for one....Damhnat !!!!!

Unless its also a saint, how come this one is an exception? Or is it some holy place?
If not I always wondered what Damhnat is !
Cheers !

On one side of the aircraft is the saints name in Irish, and on the other the saints name in English. Perhaps this is the saints name in Irish.
