    Abstract

    Place-names have a highly respected lineage in traditional historical and landscape studies. They have been seen to provide important indicators of settlement and landscape change from the past, as well as evidence about the peoples and cultures that occupied such landscapes: 'Irish placenames are spots in time as well as space, palimpsests in which a whole disrupted history lies waiting to be deciphered'.
