Fieldnames Project

Skerries Historical Society is one of six groups chosen by Fingal County Council to help with the Fingal Fieldnames Project

Abarta Heritage have been appointed as consultants to progress the project and give training on a method of collection and ideas of where to collect information, so that there is a consistent approach by all the groups. Work will be carried out over the next year and hopefully it will be possible to see patterns or themes emerging. Themes to look out for will be fieldnames to do with topography, local people, local events and names in Irish.

If you are interested in participating in this exciting project please contact us at oldskerries@gmail.com or text or ring Geraldine Clarke on 086-3468602

You do not need to be a member of Skerries Historical Society. It’s for everybody in the local community.
