Sallows is an old word for any native broad leafed willow tree such as Salix Caprea. Years ago they were important sources of charcoal and tanbark.
This town land is known as Meenasillagh or Mín na Saileach in Irish, meaning "mountain pasture of the sallows".
Here the sallow stands just outside the garden with the wide expanse of ancient pasturelands spreading out as far as the other side of the valley, where the mountain rises up to meet the sky.
