Random information on the term “SWORD”:
Swords (Irish: Sord[N 1] [sˠoːɾˠd̪ˠ] or Sord Cholmcille) is the county town of Fingal and a large suburban town on the Northside of Dublin. Lying ten kilometres north of the city centre, on the Ward River, and reputedly founded around 560 A.D., it features a restored medieval castle, a holy well from which it takes its name, a round tower and a Norman tower. Near to Dublin Airport, Swords is also home to one of the Dublin region’s larger shopping centres, The Pavilions, several other retail facilities and a range of industries. Suburban housing estates lie around the town centre, with several parks and many schools and sporting facilities.
The name “Swords” is also applicable to a townland,[N 2] to the civil parish, within the historic County Dublin, and to the local electoral area.
The town’s origins date back to 560 AD when it was reputedly founded by Saint Colmcille (521–567). Legend has it that the saint blessed a local well, giving the settlement its name, Sord, meaning “clear” or “pure”. However, An Sord also means “the water source” and could indicate a large communal drinking well that existed in antiquity. St. Colmcille’s Well is located on Well Road off Main Street. Sord may also refer to a “sward”, an ‘expanse of grass’. The most ubiquitous landscape indicators of early Christian settlement are the ecclesiastical enclosures, and in the case of Swords, the street pattern has been influenced by the circular alignment of the settlement.
