Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    stone ring-fort of (the) way

    Sna solaoidí éagsúla den logainm idir na blianta 1633 agus 1841, níl ach siolla amháin sa dara mír den ainm tríd síos, Cahersley (1633), Cahirslee (c1660), (1718) srl. Cathair slíd(h)e an fhoirm aitiúil Ghaeilge a scríobhadh le peann luaidhe in Ainmleabhar na Suibhéireachta Ordanáis (1841). Leagan Gaeilge eile a scríobh Sean Ó Donnabhain san Ainmleabhar céanna ná Cathair Sléibhe. Ní dócha go n-oireann an mhír sliabh don taobh tíre áfach. Cé go bhfuil dhá shiolla sa bhfocal a thagann i ndiaidh Cathair i gcaint an lae inniu, ní féidir neamhsuim a dhéanamh den fhianaise stairiúil, mar a bhfaightear focal aonsiollach i ndeireadh an logainm.
