Book Description

18 Nov 1999 The place-names of Northern Ireland series
Ulster s rich and diverse cultural heritage is reflected in its place-names, which have their origins in many languages including Irish, Scots, English, Old French and Old Norse. Names evoke the history of townlands, villages, towns, cities, archaeological; sites and geographical features and are of great significance to local people. The book remedies the long-standing need for a reliable and up-to-date dictionary of Ulster place-names, supplying the derivations and meanings of around 1300 names in nine Ulster counties, as well as providing interesting local background information, with more than 50 illustrations. Much of the material in the book derives from the database built up within the Northern Ireland Place-Name Project since its establishment in1987. This primary and highly authoritative reference resource is made available again in this attractive Second Edition, which provides revised and fully up-dated entries in the light of on-going research, with numerous corrections and revisions in all categories of information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Placenames of Ireland 1 Oct 2011
An excellent and informative book, highly recommended to me by experts; my only disappointment was that it did not contain more Donegal placenames.
