The inspiration for this collection is an interesting opening piece and introduction by John McCullen to a book that tells more than just what it says on the cover.. A beautifully crafted piece and perhaps one of the best books ever produced in the county it contains a wealth of information that can be dipped into again and again. For myself it was a present over the Christmas and you would need a week or two of spare time just to get through the articles and different info on all of the place names and town lands not to mention the fine poems and history items contained within its pages. And that's not to mention the beautiful photographs. Two of the articles worth making a beeline for would be "The Names of the Fields" by Tom French and "The Last of the Storytellers: 1798 and Meath" by Eamon Doyle. But then you have "Native Wit and Landmarks of the People: Folklore in Meath" by Seamus Mac Gabhann and an array of articles by Joan Mullen so it really is a treasure trove and a credit to those who put it together. In the past while I've come across a number of books, on or about different parts of the county, where the production values are superb and the above is certainly one for the collection. Priced at €20 and published by The Meath Field Names Project. In all good bookshops as they say.
