An Dúchoraidh is the only official name. The anglicized spelling Doochary has no official status.

An Dúchoraidh or An Dúcharaidh (anglicized as Doochary),[1] meaning "the black weir", is a small village in the Rosses area of County Donegal, Ireland. Doochary is within the Gaeltacht, meaning the Irish language is the main language used there, but concern has been expressed regarding the decline of the language in the area.[2] Doochary was awarded the Tidy Towns award in 1997.[3]
