Tomorrow, Sunday 23rd February @ 3:30pm The Field Names of County Meath with Joan Mullen and John McCullen.
This is a Kells & District Tourism Forum event at Rockfield House, Kells, Co. Meath.
Entry €5.00 (Refreshments provided).
Due to changing farming and ownership patterns in rural Meath, the need to record the field names, folklore and features of our fields has become a matter of urgency. Much of the information is being carried in folk memory and is at risk because of the diminishing population of farmers and rural dwellers. The idea of collecting all the field names in Meath originated with a small group of people. This group took local soundings, canvassed interest, organised a meeting and set up a group of people from varying backgrounds and locations in the county to oversee the project.
