Aghagower - Irish Place Names

Patrick Weston Joyce
1923

Aghagower in Mayo; the correct name would be Agha-fower, for the ancient form, as found in the old Lives of St. Patrick, is Achadh-fobhair, the field of the spring, from a celebrated well, now called St. Patrick's well. The present form is written in The Tribes and Customs of Hy Fiachrach, Achadh-gabhair, which means the field of the goat.
