The Westmeath Field Names Recording project:

Last year a pilot project was set up and community groups in Taughmon and Drumraney recorded hundreds of local field names. These names have uploaded to the map viewer on the website https://meitheal.logainm.ie/westmeath-field-names/ 

A booklet outlining the project and some of the results from 2018 is available from the Heritage Office heritage@westmeathcoco.ie.

The project is continuing this year being with support from the Heritage Council and Westmeath County Council.

If you are interested in learning more about the project or recording fieldnames in your area get in touch with the Heritage Officer
