Ecclesiastical Elements in Irish Place-Names Conference Map Term Year Month Day The poster below shows the distribution of specific ecclesiastical elements in Irish place-names. This poster was produced for the Churches and Settlements in Ireland: Landscape, Life and Heritage conference held at All Saints' College, Dublin this month. It is worth mentioning that the map on the poster contains only place names that have been certified by the Irish version, except for items.
Approximate place names have certified Irish Latest Mailing Database versions in the database (excluding street names), so these maps are an illustration of the distribution of elements in these place names. In the database, Northern Ireland has fewer confirmed Irish place names than the Republic of Ireland, which creates inconsistencies. This is evident in the distribution plots associated with the cell items on the poster. The item appears to be more rare in the North, but that's not an interpretation of the story, as too many unverified place names were ruled out.
The Irish place-names originated in Ireland, so if the English version of the place-names were used to create a distribution map, a reliable representation would not be obtained because Irish items would not gradually be transliterated into English. A good example is the item and in English. These two items are used to transliterate Irish words and in English, so it is often impossible to be absolutely sure which is which without extensive research. However, a more complete description of its distribution can be found regarding this word, since it is a word of English origin and is spelled.
