*gere (PIE) - Crane (English)or in Irish An Corr :-

O.E. cran "large wading bird," common Germanic (O.S. krano, O.H.G. krano, Ger. Kranich,Welsh garan, Lith. garnys "heron, stork").
Although this bird has been absent from Ireland for about three centuries the birds role in ancient society has been forgotten. This is due in part due to the fact that its name in Irish is similar to that of the Grey Heron (An Corr vs An Corr Glas). The animal appears to have been domesticated and is thought to be represented by the bird leading the procession on the Ahenny Celtic Cross. Knocknagor (cnoc na gcorr - hill of the cranes/herons); Reaskcor (riasc corr - marsh where cranes gather);.
