Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    Dhá áit ar leith iad Neidín agus Ceann Mara. Is ionann Ceann Mara agus baile fearainn Kenmare Old ar an taobh theas den chuan. Is é 'ceann na taoide tuile' an bhrí atá leis an ainm. Bhí an t-ainm céanna ar an bparóiste eaglasta (Kenmare / Ceann Mara) a bhfuil tagairtí dó i bhfoinsí ón 14ú haois i leith cuir i gcás — cé go dtugtar Neidín ar an bparóiste Caitliceach i nGaeilge. Ar bhruach thuaidh an chuain a bhí Neidín ó cheart — 'Kenmare' a thugtar ar an mbaile fearainn sin sa Bhéarla ar léarscáileanna na Suirbhéireachta Ordanáis agus is ann a tógadh cuid de bhaile Kenmare / Neidín. Fiú i lár an 17ú haois thugtaí 'Nedeen fort' i mBéarla ar an dúnfort a bhí ar bhruach thuaidh an chuain. Tosnaíodh ar an ainm Béarla Kenmare a thabhairt ar an mbaile, in ionad Neidín. Seans go raibh an t-athrú sin níos déanaí ná an 17ú haois ach go háirithe.
