Blatha An Oir means "Blossoms of Gold" in Gaelic. The name was chosen by members of the shire in consultation with Master Liam of the Barque and Dame Deirdre Muldomhnaigh (Muldowney), then Baron and Baroness of Madrone. For this and other help which they gave the shire in it's early years, they were presented with the Golden Blossom, an award of Blatha An Oir.
