I am living in the town land of Piercestown. The reason it is called that, is because there was a land-lord living there and his name was Pierce, he [?] all the land and it was called after him.
The village that I live near is called Riverstick. The reason it is called that is because there were sticks across it long ago.
There is another village further on it is called Ballymartle. The reason it is called that is because there was a man called martle lived there.
