Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the town of Tancard
    Tancard — sloinne (< TancredTancard)
    Is struchtúr an-chomónta i gCo. na Mí é an téarma lonnaíochta Angla-Normannach -tún (-town ní ba dhéanaí) á cháiliú le hainm pearsanta nó le sloinne. Is é an focal Gaeilge a fhreagraíonn do -town i logainmeacha den chineál sin ná baile, agus rinneadh roinnt mhaith de na logainmneacha Béarla seo a ghaelú ar an múnla baile +* *ainm.
