    place of holly?

    Cuileanntrach leagan eile den ainm seo: féach 1514 ‘Caislen na Cuilentraighe do brisedh … d’Iarla Cille Dara … ar Laíghiss hI Mordho’ in Annála Connacht agus faoin mbliain 1645 ‘go Caislen na Cuilentraoi’ in Cín Lae Uí Mhealláin. Déanann Laurence (Maoileachlainn) Ó Broin, Gaeilgeoir léannta ón bhFailligh Bheag, tagairt do ‘the great holly that formerly grew in its woods, from which it was called Cuileneach Mhor’ i Litreacha na Suirbhéireachta Ordanáis II 265. Dhá fhocal coitianta is ea cuileanntrach agus cuileannach atá díorthaithe ó cuileann “holly”.
