Place-name talks
Hi. I'd like to give a plug to a couple of events related to mountain names and place-names generally. The first is a local event that might appeal to people who walk in the Sperrin Mountains. Tomorrow, Thursday 5th Nov, at 7.30pm I'm giving an illustrated talk at the Institute of Irish Leadership in Pomeroy, Co. Tyrone, about Place-names in the mountain landscape of Co. Tyrone. The second event is on a rather bigger scale and takes place at Queen's University Belfast the following Thursday, 12th Nov, at 8pm. Dr. Nollaig Muraile, Senior Lecturer at NUI Galway, will give a public lecture entitled 'John O Donovan, most able and judicious Irish scholar and topographer'. O Donovan was the first Professor of Celtic Languages at Queen's College Belfast, the forerunner to Queen's University. He is best known for his work advising the Ordnance Survey on Irish place-names and for his editions of several important early Irish texts, most notably of Annala Rioghachta Eireann (better known as The Annals of the Four Masters). The venue is Lecture Hall G06 of the Peter Froggatt Centre at Queens (accessible from University Square). The lecture is taking place within the 2nd International Conference on the Early Medieval Toponymy of Ireland and Scotland. There is no charge for admission to the lecture and all are welcome. Thanks, Paul.
