The project is being organised and carried out by a community group or meitheal:

  • Dermot Diamond (Project manager)
  • Rónán Ó Gealbháin
  • Rónán Ó Dochartaigh (Oideas Gael)
  • Aisling Ní Churraighín (Béal an Phobail)
  • Niamh Ní Dhochartaigh

The group came together in early 2021 to create a map of the placenames throughout the parish of Gleann Cholm Cille and to gather as much information in relation to these names as possible. We welcome anybody else who would like to get involved in any aspect of the work. We would like to pay special tribute to our friend and founding member Seamus McGinley, who worked on the project throughout 2021, and who sadly passed away in March 2022.
