Why not call it Dublin instead Baile Atha Cliath? The latter sounds horrific.

Go ahead. Torino bidded Torino, even though in english it is Turin.

Ireland's lingua franca is English, not Irish, unlike Italy who's lingua france is Italian, not English. Irish usually only spoken day-to-day in Western Ireland and Dublin is on the eastcoast.

In marketing, you gotta first consider your audience and this audience is primarily English. Sure, the 2006 Games were known as Torino, but is not that far off from Turin. The Japanese and Chinese used English lettering in their games for 1998 and 2008. Dublin should be Dublin...not Hack Yack Black...sounds like you are clearing your throat.
