Cappagh

cappagh


Cappagh is a word derived from the Irish Gaelic word caepach meaning a large tillage plot (of land). This is the very first time I have come across it, and it is somewhat of a surprise to do so on a street sign in Uxbridge, London.

It reminded me of the Welsh traffic sign story in Cambridgeshire, or the Polish traffic sign story in Cheshire. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s as interesting as this: the sign probably belongs to a construction company.
