  • I love your site, Vincent.

    I found your website when researching my own area, Tamlaght O’Crilly in County Derry. ‘Tamlaght’ always kept appearing in the results – due to the other Tamlaght in County Tyrone.

    Anyways, keep up the great work.

    Best regards.

    • Thanks for your kind comments. Lots of names are similar as they are a description of some aspect of the area. It may mean a place set apart, perhaps for holy reasons. I was told in my youth it was because the one at Omagh was used as a burial place for people who had the plague and it was not near the other graveyard and church.
