Helen BS: What colour IS that? (35) RE: BS: What colour IS that? 14 Nov 19

Well, DtG, in NSW and in Queensland, Australia Clontarf are both waterside suburbs, although not beachside locations.

However, I am not at all sure what Clontarf looks like in Ireland. Nope, it looks the same from the satellite photos. All three places look very similar but not white or whitish.

That doesn't help your search at all for what the colour "Clontarf" is and I'm resisting the temptation to Google it at this stage.

On a related topic about arbitrarily chosen names, at my previous workplace, a government department, instead of filling in what used to be known as a retirement/resignation form when I looked it up it had been renamed to an "offboarding" form. Whenever I spoke about it to managers etc I could only do it by using the quotation marks gesture and a WTF verbal intonation and related facial expressions. I was repeatedly told that it made perfect sense (to the managers) because the form to fill in when a person joins the organisation is now known as an "onboarding" form. On each occasion, I said your words verbatim, "Who comes up with these names?".
