Most excellent. That's great :-), you can move it to the fixed list,
same drill as the last time.


As a random aside, the abbreviation TD in TDs is "Teachta Dála", so TDs
is something of a butchering of language with an English plural suffix
on an abbreviation of an Irish term, *shrug*, but it's a common usage. 

Which prompt me to vaguely wonder about the idea of fixing/improving our
autocorrect to better support auto-correcting the language of a
just-typed word in locales where when writing in one language its common
to use terms from another languages, e.g. when in en_IE and typing Garda
to auto-correct the language from en_IE to ga_IE for that word. I think
we support this in principle.
