Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the (wooded) height

    Talamh ard idir Gleann Doimhin Ó Riagáin laistiar agus An Gleann Leathan lastoir. (Ainm an bhaile fearainn teorantaigh bf Garbhach (#28411) atá le feiscint in iontrálacha 1682, 1708.)

    Mionainmneacha ar an léarscáil:
    Luaitear 1838 ‘an ancient well called Tubberbinbeg Well’ san Ainmleabhar. Is ionann é seo, is dócha, agus 1841 Holy Well SO 6″ atá suite sa talamh íseal ar imeall thuaidh an bhaile fearainn, gné nach bhfuil léirithe ar na léarscaileanna athbhreithnithe. Ní léir a bhunainm Gaeilge.
