How Aghenderry got is name.
The name of the Townsland where I live is Aghenderry. The Irish translation of Aghenderry is the Plain of the Oaks. Many old names seem to come from the nature of the produce of the soil and in the locality and surounding districts the Oak trees seems to flurish.
On fences and waste land young oak trees spring up and grow without ever planting them.
In the adjoining district of Desart the oak is of a great quality. When ships were built of timber the Desart oak was considered of superior quality and much of this timber was cut down and sent to Belfast and Glasgow for ship building.
Even to-day the Desart oak is being sawn up and used for different purposes, on railways in England and Éire.
