Cuylochohy
n. eag.: Cuylochohy (cf. no. 75 and CPL xii. 582; FE 5043 [?]) is a phonetic spelling of the Middle Irish Cúilotaithg (which in modern Irish would be Cúil-Ó-dTaidhg) the mediaeval name of the parish of Baile-na-hEaglaise (Spa). The latter part of the name, which is that of a family, is found in Lios-Ó-dTaidhg, the townland where both the mediaeval and modern churches stand. (Cf. Ballyheige = Bail’ Uí Thaigh). The name Baile-na-hEaglaise can be traced back to 1587 (F.E. no. 5043) though the older name “Parish of Cúil” is still not quite forgotten in the neighbourhood.
