The first stage of the website for Meath Field Names Project went live in mid February. Over the coming months we will be enhancing and improving this site. We plan to embed an interactive mapping section into the site. A browser will start with a map of Meath; they will be able to zoom in on the part of the County they are interested in. They can then zoom in on their chosen townland. At this point the field names will appear on the fields within the townland. It will be possible for the browser to click on any individual field and the details gathered about that field (history, features, folklore etc) will pop up. We are working on this at present.
We will officially launch this website shortly after our book publication in July / August of this year. We would appreciate if any local history and Meath related sites could create links through to our site.
