Nice shot. We got one similar here but I cant remember what they call it.    :blush:

Thanks Swede! It's one of the most common here.

I have not read the whole page but have you Ben to killeen? My wife's maden nane is killeen

I know of Killeen, Co.Clare, but I haven't been there. And Killeen isn't a surname I've come across very often. However the place where my grandmother lives and my mum grew up is called Killeeneen, which when translated from Gaelic mean The church of Finín (Fineen).

 

The strange thing about Ireland's place names are that if two places sharing the same name could have different meanings because of two reasons, the variance in how Gaelic was spoken across the island and because of how it was Anglicised later.

Had a look into the name Killeen and it appears to be most common in the Province of Connaught, in the counties of Mayo and Galway.
