John Creddon has written a wonderful book, presented in hardback, discussing the placenames of Ireland. He examines Viking, Norman, Greek and Roman influences on our placenames, as well as more natural influences such as animals, rivers, hills and so forth.
'Place names are the clues left by our ancestors - signposts that point us towards who our predecessors were, how they lived and how they made sense of this very same world we now inhabit. I have criss - crossed Ireland a thousand times, and every time I do, I feel our ancestors are speaking to us through the place names written on signposts of Ireland, it's like they are trying to tell us something'
