We are delighted to announce that Fore has been chosen as the next area for the Field Names Project. Come along to the Coffee Shop in Fore on July 3rd, to meet the project curator and to find out more about this brilliant initiative.
To get us started, a collector called K Molloy from Glenidan School in the 1930s gathered some of the names in the area.
One I recognised is BÓTHAR na gCIPÍN – a townsland in Fore- meaning road of the little branches- and RANDÚN – the hill overlooking Lough Lene Collinstown.
Plenty to think about here – and plenty more to come!
