Mayo." The word "culchie" is derived from the Irish word "coillte", the plural of coill, the Irish word for "wood", an area of growing trees. It was used, mainly in Mayo and Galway, by townspeople as a condescending reference to people from rural areas. It came into use in Dublin in the mid sixties as a counter to the country people’s use of the word "Jackeen" for Dublin people.PeopleFrank Feely SDLP politician in Northern Ireland.Antoine Ó Raifteiri (Anthony Raftery), the blind Irish-language poetWilliam Philbin, Roman Catholic bishop of Clonfert (1953–1962) and Down and Connor (1962–1982)Louis Walsh, pop music manager and judges on X Factor
