Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    land between a (river-)fork

    Níl aon amhras faoi bhunús an logainm seo. Téann idir fhianaise scríofa (1610 ‘Edarguil’ na Gaeilge go háirithe) agus shuíomh an bhaile fearainn (suite i ladhar idir abhainn is sruthán; féach www.osi.ie) leis an logainm comónta eadargúil/eadargóil (< etar+gabul na Sean-Ghaeilge) (cf. Ca, Co, DG, Ga, Li, ME, Mu).

    Díol spéise gur abh An Ghabhal “the fork(ed river)” (#116596) is ainm don abhainn laisteas (abhainn í seo a thug ainm don mbarúntacht Gabhalmhaigh “plain of An Ghabhal” (#120) i gCill Chainnigh). Tagann tagairtí luatha Gaeilge don abhainn seo anuas chugainn m.sh. 1160 ‘Gabol’, 1160 ‘Gabla’ (gin.). Féach cruth na tagairte laidinithe 1240 ‘[Gort]edro Godelli’ — b’fhéidir gur measadh tráth gurbh é ainm na habhann a bhí sa dara heilimint den logainm.
