Minor Placenames Workshop 2018

'Aithním an chré agus an chloch...'

Fiontar & Scoil na Gaeilge, DCU, is organising a workshop on the topic of minor placenames (placenames other than administrative placenames and population centres). This workshop will be of interest to placenames researchers, to local history and heritage groups and to current or potential contributors to Meitheal Logainm.ie. Talks will be in either Irish or English. The workshop will include a dinner, a practical session on using Meitheal Logainm.ie, and a historical walking tour of the local area (Drumcondra), led by Séamas Ó Maitiú.
