Musicesque placenames in Clare
Don’tcha just love some of the townland. etc placenames in Clare especially those to do with the music – Liskeentha, Cahernanoorane, let alone places called Cnoc an hiomana (Knockananima?), Caheraphuca, Cloughaphuca, Crag Liath, Lisfearbegnagommaun, Lisheenvicknaheeha, Lios a tSiodhain, Tobersheefra, and, no doubt a ‘host’ of other scary-sounding places. (apologies in advance for any and all spelling and translation issues)
Imagine playin’ an ol’ tune in the middle of a black night in some of those places. Y’d have to be game to be up for that sort of craic eh.
But it’s just all the old tales.
