    the church of Scíre
    Scíre — ainm pearsanta mná
    Iasacht luath ó cella na Laidine is ea cell (cill na Nua-Ghaeilge) a chiallaíonn eaglais. Tá breis is fiche paróiste (dlí) sa Mhí a bhfuil an téarma lonnaíochta eaglasta seo chun tosaigh iontu. Tá eaglais den ainm Cill Scíre i gCo. na Mí agus i gCo. Thír Eoghain chomh maith. Luaitear ‘Scire ógh ó Chill Scire i Midhe’ i bhfoirm nóta a cuireadh le Féilire Uí Ghormáin, féilire a scríobhadh i gCnoc na nAspal i gCo. Lú i ndeireadh an 12ú haois. Timpeall céad bliain roimhe sin, breacadh ‘erchennech Cille Scíre agus bachall Scíre’ i Leabhar Cheanannais, i gcáipéis faoi fhearann na mainistreach
