Love the street sign shot - I mean, who would have thought, without photo evidence, it would actually match the address!


off topic - Does anyone know what Bhan an Aeir means? I'm getting women of the air.... Angels maybe?

I really wish the translation of irish place names had been done properly. Always wanted to be a Shallowford man.

You mean this? Probably Airfield was the original

In any event it's "bhán" not "bhan" - so not "women" but white - or :

Droim, meaning ridge occurs in numerous field names. Bawn, deriving from ‘bán’ the Irish word for white also appears regularly in the Meath field names collected. Many fields with hills have names with cnoc, croc or crocken. These names come from Cnoc and Cnocán, Irish words for hills and hillocks.

Gives bán translated as "ley", which is loosely grassland or pasture.

Edit: Apparently ley is more like 'set aside', i.e. land that's been left to rest for a season or more.

So, "The Road of the Setaside Field of Air"

I don't know if they're bad photos.
