The Irish language has thirty-two words for field. Among them are:Geamhar – a field of corn-grassTuar – a field for cattle at nightRéidhleán – a field for games or dancingCathairín – a field with a fairy-dwelling in itThe richness of a language closely tied to the natural landscape offered our ancestors a more magical way of seeing the world.
