Description

John Creedon has always been fascinated by place names, from growing up in Cork City as a young boy to travelling around Ireland making his popular television show. In this brilliant new book, he peels back the layers of meaning of familiar place names to reveal stories about the land of Eireann and the people who walked it before us.

Travel the highways, byways and boreens of Ireland with John and become absorbed in the place names, such as ‘The Cave of the Cats’, ‘Artichoke Road’, ‘The Eagle’s Nest’ and ‘Crazy Corner’. All hold clues that help to uncover our past and make sense of that place we call home, feeding both mind and soul along the way.

That Place We Call Home will foster or feed a love of local lore and cultivate an appreciation for the historical remnants scattered in plain sight all over Ireland’s 63,000 townlands’ Irish Independent
