Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the corner, nook of Ruán;
    corner, nook of (the) red ground

    Ruán — ainm pearsanta, is dócha. Ach tá bríonna éagsúla leis an ainmfhocal ruán a d’fhéadfadh a bheith i gceist freisin. Socraíodh foirm Ghaeilge an logainm seo in Ainmneacha Gaeilge na mBailte Poist (1969).
