    I don't know if it's correct but The Rower in Wexford might be an option

    Could be Donnybrook - which has come to mean brawl or fight.

    How about Roscommon? As in Row's Coming

    Hi All, the Answer was swords. Reasoning behind this I think, Back in the olden days before a fight they would cross swords. So without the cross its just swords.

    Thanks for all your help.
