Thanks for Wicklow map
Many thanks to Seamus Holden who replied to my appeal for info on Wicklow place-names. He put me on to an 1822 map of Co. Wicklow which has some very useful names marked on it and sent me a copy of it as a jpeg. It will take a will to work through, but I'm confident that it will shed some light on the origins of some Wicklow names or on old names which have (almost) been lost. Lugnahala, for example, seems to be an old name for Glendoo Mountain on the Dublin/Wicklow border. It is probably from Ir. Log na hEala, 'hollow of the swan', so it must originally have applied to one of the hollows in the upper reaches of Glencree. If anyone has further information on Billy Byrne's Gap, Wexford Gap, Cavanagh's Gap or Baravore, especially local knowledge, I'd be grateful.
