    place of pastures

    bf Cluanach (#28395) agus bf Cluanach Mhór (#28397) teorantach le chéile, laisteas den phortach por Móin Eitigh (#1410800), ach tá an dá bhaile fearainn bf An Bhrocach (#28388) agus bf An Bhrocach Bheag (#28389) suite idir iad agus bf Cluanach Bheag (#28396) laistiar.

    Seans maith gurbh aon aonad amháin iad na trí bhaile fearainn seo tráth, ach ar aon chuma is féidir talamh slán a dhéanamh de gur cluanach “place of pastures” is bunús leis na hainmneacha go léir.
