She's proud

Effin in County Limerick seen as 'offensive' on Facebook

For most people adding the name of where they live on Facebook is relatively straightforward.

A problem, however, arises when the place where you live is seemingly branded as offensive by the social networking site.

One woman from Effin in County Limerick in the Irish Republic has so far been unable to add the village name to the 'home place' section of her Facebook profile.

Ann Marie Kennedy, who works in the department of nursing and midwifery at the University of Limerick, has now started an online campaign to to get Effin recognised.

"I was born and raised in Effin and my family come from here," she said. [...]

Ms Kennedy now lives in Banogue but hopes to move back to Effin. "I'm a proud Effin woman and I always will be an Effin woman," she said.
