The Clare Townland Fieldname Survey
In 2010 the Clare Placenames Committee, with the support of highly capable and trained surveyors, trained interested parties throughout the county in the collection and recording of fieldnames; organised a media campaign to raise the awareness of such; and continue to collect new information in eighteen townlands.... As a final aim, the Committee aspires to the digitisation of research on placenames in the county previously undertaken, but which was not made available in digital format.
