There are many old names of fields still existing in my locality.
There is a field which is called the "covert field" and probably (c) it got its name from a covert which was there.
There is another field which is called "Clough Lea".
This one (is) got its name from a quarry that is in it.
Another field called the "deer park" is owned by Mrs. Ross and many deer were in this 60 acred field about a century ago.
A field belonging to Mr. Farrell Ralthogue is called still "Raheen" from an old mound that is in it.
