    “White Woman Creek” is the name of the creek under the bridge in the picture, not the town in the distance.

    Pretty sure I could name 11 weirder names within 150 miles of me. Half of these seem pretty self-explanatory.

    Here in Ireland you’ll find lots of funny place names – coming from our native language, a lot of our names probably seem peculiar to non-natives. Anyway, here are some that even we can’t explain!
    And a personal favourite, a town in county Limerick called – wait for it – Hospital. Yes, a town, not a medical building. A town called Hospital.
