The word 'kesh' was often used during turf saving operations on bogs. It was a temporary bridge over drains, sometimes made of tree branches and bits of timber. There is a village called Cloonkesh in Turlough. Cloon, as far as I know, is the Irish word for meadow. So Cloonkesh might mean,in a rough translation, the meadow of the bridges. Kesh may have other meanings as well.
