Bidh Liam Crouse, oileanach PhD aig Tobar an Dualchais agus Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, a’ toirt sùil air seanchas nan ainmean-àite ann an Èirisgeigh agus a’ dèanamh comas eadar na tùsan airson cuid de dh’ainmean agus na h-atharrachaidhean a thachair leotha thairis air nam bliadhnaichean. Bidh e a’ bruidhinn air mar a thug an t-atharrachadh seo buaidh air na h-ainmean-àite  san eilean. Cluichidh Liam taghadh de clàraidhean bho làrach-lìn Tobar an Dualchais a tha ceangailte ri ainmean-àite Èirisgeigh mar phàirt den tachartas.
