Revised place names from Paul Tempan
Context of comment:Many of the placenames and Irish forms for names in MountainViews came from the work of Paul Tempan, a qualified scholar in the area.
He has issued a revised document with various changes and improvements and this is available here:

https://mountainviews.ie/resourceitem/names/List2019/IrishLandscapeNames2019.pdf or through the Resources page of the website:

https://mountainviews.ie/resources/
Message:It has been around 9 years since the last such update from Paul and we would like to thank him for his work.
The revised list makes a start on some coastal features and on area names as well as many detail changes.
Additional points:MountainViews is interested in correcting names as best it can so we would like to incorporate changes in the document into our online database. We invite assistance in doing this from volunteers.

Perhaps something to do in the current Covid unpleasantness.
