Map of Mount Brandon
This map of the placenames of Mount Brandon in Corca Dhuibhne, the Gaeltacht region of West Kerry was compiled by a working group led by Máirín Uí Shé, former Primary School Principal in Scoil Naomh Eirc, An Fheothanach at the foot of Mt. Brandon. Mairín encouraged her pupils, friends and neighbours who farmed the hillside, to record local placenames and tales associated with those names, as had been done in the Schools’ Folklore Commission of the 1930’s. Máirín and Domhnall Mac Síthigh walked with and interviewed the landowners, Dómhnal Ó Bric drew and illustrated the map, Feargal Mac Amhlaoibh typeset the map and Caitríona Ní Chathail, Oidhreacht Chorca Dhuibhne was editor. Funding was made available by Comharchumann Forbartha Chorca Dhuibhne, Údarás na Gaeltachta and An Chomhairle Oidhreachta.
