Explanatory note
  • Gaeilge

    town of two floods
    Baile Dhá Thuile an fhoirm oifigiúil ó 1969, ach de réir na fianaise stairiúla ba cheart Baile Uí Sháithil, 'the town of Ó Sáithil'. Féach Downesahell in Peyton Survey 113 (1586), ainm nach maireann ach a bhí sa chomharsanacht seo; féach freisin Huí Sathgil (in Genelach Hua Conaill Gabra), Corpus Genealogiarum Hiberniae I 388, agus Onomasticon Goedelicum 678. Tá baile fearainn eile i gcontae Luimnigh den ainm Baile Uí Sháithil/Ballyhahil
