The missing “d” and the homemade chicken

Wednesday, 5 September, 2012


Spotted late at night in the village of Croom, County Limerick. Croom (Irish: Cromadh meaning “Bend in the River”) was occupied by the FitzGerald dynasty in the 14th century. Until then, it had been the Limerick seat of the O’Donovan family. Their ancestor, Crom Ua Donnab?in, took his name from the place, and Cromadh and its past became part of the FitzGerald war cry, “Crom Abu!”
