Caldrum Glebe, County Fermanagh

Origin

perhaps Ir. Cáldroim ‘herb ridge’

Background

The element cál ‘cabbage, kail’ is loosely applied to various herbs, particularly in Ulster (Dinneen). In the current name, it may appear as a prefix on the second element which is clearly, droim ‘ridge’.

Alternatively we might suggest Colldroim ‘hazel ridge’, which has been suggested for another Caldrum in the parish of Clogher.

The absence of any historical evidence for this name makes it impossible to make any concrete proposals as to its original form.
