List Price


Place-Names of Northern Ireland provides a revealing window on the land and its people. Many early Irish names for settlements, districts, hills, and rivers are still used today and most townland names are of Irish origin. This major new series on the place-names of Northern Ireland concentrates on townland names, dealt with in their traditional civil parish units. This volume covers part of southern County Down; the Lordship of Newry (including the Armagh parts of Newry parish), and the five parishes in the barony of Upper Iveagh, Upper Half: Clonallan, Donaghmore, Drumgath, Kilbroney, and Warrenpoint.
