Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the grave(-mound), monument of Tíog?
    Tíog — ainm pearsanta?

    Tá bunús an dara heilimint anseo éiginnte. Is cosúil go bhfuil an cáilitheoir céanna anseo is atá sa logainm par Inis Tíog (#27231) i gCill Chainnigh — is dócha gur ainm pearsanta atá ann. (D’fhéadfadh sé gur ainm ceana é ar Tagán, naomh atá luaite le paróiste Chorrchluana (#1430).)

    Ainmneacha stairiúla:

    1. Sheasadh caisleán Leacht Tíog ar láthair Prospect House SO i dtuaisceart an bhaile fearainn, de réir úinéirí an tí chéanna (www.archaeology.ie; cf. 1562–63 ‘an old castle in Loghtyoge’ agus caisleán léirithe ar léarscáil 1563c). Tabhair faoi deara an mionainm lámh leis an teach seo: 1838 ‘a field called ‘Clough Leagh’’, 1841 Cloghleagh SO, 1950c ‘Cloch Cleak’ (i measc nótaí Liam Price sa Bhrainse Logainmneacha). Ní léir aon talamh chlochach anseo agus ní luaitear aon ghallán; caolseans mar sin gur An Chloch Liath sa chiall “the grey (delapidated?) stone castle” atá sa mhionainm seo, agus gur fíor don eolas áitiúil faoi shuíomh an chaisleáin.
    2. Ní léir suíomh beacht do 1549 ‘Loghtrodin’, ‘Loghtrodey’, 1557 ‘Lewghtredane’, 1563 ‘Loghtrodden’, 1607 ‘Loughdruddnie’, 1610 ‘Loghtroden’ < Loch Trodáin (?) “the lake of the brawl” (cf. www.dil.ie s.v. trotán) a luaitear sa cheantar seo.
