Talk on birds and place names

By Amy Lewis

Wildlife, folklore and heritage fans are sure to flock to Wexford Wildfowl Reserve for a special event about birds and Irish place names on March 10.

Presented by Dr Conchubhar O'Crualaoich, 'Aspects of Birds in Irish Placenames, Early Irish Law and Culture' will be an informative talk about the link between our natural history and human cultural history. It will take place as part of Seachtain na Gaeilge.

Dr O Crualaoich, who works for the Placenames Branch of the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, has concentrated much of his work on the townland names of Wexford, Sligo and Wicklow. This interesting lecture will have you looking at local places from a different perspective. This event is free, no booking is required and parking is free in the Wexford Wildfowl Reserve car park. Lecture begins at 7 p.m.
