    Mionainmneacha eile ar an léarscáil:

    1. Díol spéise struchtúr an mhionainm 1838 ‘Tample Shan akile’, Templeshankyle SO, i ndeisceart an bhaile fearainn. Is féidir talamh slán a dhéanamh de gur (An t)Seanchill “the old church” atá sa dara cuid den ainm — luaitear 1586c ‘In Lexia … V. de Shankyll’. D’fhéadfadh sé gur ainm fíordhéanach é Temple+shankyle inar fágadh an sean-logainm ina aonad infhillte: más ea cuir é i gcomparáid le 1896 ‘Thomple-nay-galish (accent on nay)’ < 1838 Eglish Friary SO faoi bf Mion Droichid (#27810).
