Grianan Fidh means "Sunny Meadow" in Irish (I think!), not sure on the others.

Aiken's village comes from famous Politician of the 1950's Jim Aiken, who owned all the land.

Thanks mongo.

Seems my bored wife has been googling this...

"Greenan, Greenane, Greenaun, Grenan; Grianan, a

summer residence, a royal palace. Prom grian, the

sun. "

"Feagh ; Fiodhach [Feeagh], a woody place (fidh}. "

Frank Aiken owned some of the land, mainly towards the rear, Grianan Fidh and some of Cluain Shee. In the 1950's the rest was owned by John Lenehan and subsequent generations since then prior to being sold to developers.
