    the wood
    giorrúchán < Coill Bhaile Uí Thuathail (?) “the wood of Baile Uí Thuathail”
    Baile Uí Thuathailthe town of Ó Tuathal (sloinne)

    Faightear défhoghar /~əi/ i bhfoirmeacha béarlaithe de cill agus de coill araon sa cheantar seo. Níl iarsmaí eaglasta ar bith sa bhaile fearainn beag seo, áfach, agus moltar coill mar aicmitheoir anseo.

    Is cosúil gur Coill Bhaile Uí Thuathail “the wood of Baile Uí Thuathail” an fhoirm fhada den logainm atá le feiscint in iontráil 1654 ‘the river betwixt Killballetowell and Ballycullen’, sa chur síos ar theorainneacha bharúntacht na Sráidbhaile in Civil Survey X 21.
