The Clare Townland Fieldname Survey
In 2010 the Clare Placenames Committee, with the support of highly capable and trained surveyors, trained interested parties throughout the county in the collection and recording of fieldnames; organised a media campaign to raise the awareness of such; and continue to collect new information in eighteen townlands as detailed in the document entitled – Planned Fieldname Research 2010. As a final aim, the Committee aspires to the digitisation of research on placenames in the county previously undertaken, but which was not made available in digital format. It is envisaged that such valuable information would be added to the places and placenames information on the Clare Library website. Information on the following townlands was collected during the first part of the project:

Ballycarroll Townland

Ballycasey More Townland

Bunratty West Townland

Knockaclara Townland

Licknaun Townland

The Clare Placenames Committee
The Clare Placenames Committee was established in 2002 to give advice on selecting placenames and to monitor new names given to developments throughout the County. Throughout the life of the Committee, many other facets of placenames have been explored by the Committee, one of which was a national placenames conference which was organised in 2003, and the other most challenging project undertaken by the Committee is the collection, recording and making available to the public, the results of its townland and fieldname research. The Committee sees this work as integral to the history and heritage of the County
