Right looking for the wonderful and weird on Irish place names, I'll kick it off but Im sure these are going to get topped....
Maam, Co. Galway

Newtownpothouse, Mallow, Co.Cork

Is the translation something like Baile Nua Teach na Spliffini?!
muff, co. donegal
bastardstown, co. wexford
termonfeckin, co. louth
Thats a funny one, never heard of that place before.
Horse and Jockey in County Tipperary is a strange enough name for a village I think.
AH FECK ! I knew someone would come up with that one, Im from real near there. It might interest you to know one of the writers of Father Ted is also from the area, might explain the constant use of the word Feck !
I nearly crashed my car once late at night when I bent my neck to have a double take at the Muff road sign upon entering said Muff years back
I remember it was a bit of welcome relief to enter Muff having been pulled over by 6 Brit soldiers with guns pointing at my car in Derry quite late on a Sunday night only an hour previous......
nobber, co meath
hospital, co limerick
kilbrittian, co cork
Stillorgan is pretty odd when you think about it.
There's a place in England called Lunt....... local hooligans keep changing the 'L' to a 'C' on the signs
There's a place in Kerry called Skull. Nice place too.
Coming back at ya with Sallys Gap, Co.Wicklow and Cock Hill, Stamullen, Co.Meath.
If truth be known a mate of mine lives in Cock Hill in Co.Meath which should be quite embarrassing but not as embarrassing as one of her neighbours whose name is Richard Ryder !
Haha try ****ing in Austria for size
