This is a beautiful well written book about the names given to over 2,000 named and mapped places and features in the landscape of Cape Clear Island, Co. Cork. Names given to island townlands, scores of small islands, rocks, coves, headlands, cliffs, fields, hills, streams, wells, roads, trails, crossroads, old house ruins, archaeological and historical sites are included. The history, lore and daily life functions which brought about the creation and preservation of so many names is explored. The generation of islanders who supplied and mapped the names with the author have all but passed , but their contribution is now recorded for posterity. A listing of all documentated sources consulted is provided as is an index to all names in the compilation. Some interesting colour photos of old stone built housing and aerial views add considerably to ones appreciation of the landscape of the island and its placename heritage.
