Language distribution and field names

We now have 11,000+ field names in our database. Of these c.20% have an Irish component. The map below shows the distribution of field names containing an Irish component (red) and those in English (dark green). Aside from a notable concentration of Irish names in Omeath (very NE of the Cooley peninsula) the Irish names have a fairly even spread across the county.
