Lots of examples of fields with ‘Forge made riveted iron gates’ have been highlighted. Some local historians can identify the forge where the gate was made by the style of the gate. These gates are in decline, usually they are just too narrow for modern machinery. Many that do still exist are somewhat the worst for wear. Much information has also been found about old forges, blacksmiths and foundries all around Meath. Although many ceased to operate more then 50 years ago, their impact on the rural community is still apparent in the field names and lore of county Meath.
The abundance of specialist jobs that people worked at on farms and in rural areas in the past is also highlighted in field names and their descriptions. There is mention of people who worked as Cattle Drovers, Herds, Ploughmen, Harness Makers, Nailers, Thatchers, Threshers, Blacksmiths and Tailors. Most of these specialist occupations have declined and some no longer exist.
