GUEST,Anne Croucher When England originally conquered Ireland (62* d) RE: When England orig'lly conquered Ireland 05 Nov 04

My Pocket Oxford dictionary gives the derivation from 'fene'with a /accent over the first e, an ancient Irish race.

I would have thought it was the same derivation as the name Fenns, for the marshy land in the East of England, and fells in the North, where a careless wander from the path by a solitary traveller has enriched the life of a whole watery population of sphagnum moss.
