This three-way rivalry led to a lot of arguments and bad feeling. Poor AMAIRGIN didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but a country called Fódla would never get anywhere.
For a brief period he considered combining all the names together and calling the country BANBERUFOD, but that was considered just a little too avant-garde.
Eventually he plumped for ERIU and named the country ERIULAND, which is now IRELAND, leaving BANBA and FODLA with the consolation prize of having their names made available as an alternative poetic option. They are still waiting for someone to take the option up.
