Field names on the pure mile

As part of the Pure Mile the residents recorded the field and local names in the area. These names are an integral part of our culture providing a living record not just of the topography of the land, but of the families who farm or have farmed it, the monuments, the plants and animals that inhabit it, the local history and folklore and often the Irish language.
