    the hermitage of Gailine
    Gailine — ainm na dúiche seo — an t-ainm céanna ó bhunús atá in bf, par Gailinne/Gallen i gContae Uíbh Fhailí, is cosúil Mar seo a leanas a chuireann Ó hUidhrín síos ar an gceantar seo:

    Gailine na sreabh soichleach
    D’Ó Cheallaigh ní comhoightheach
    Trom ag fiadhach an fine
    Ar fonn ngrianach nGailine

    Cf. 1541 ‘Charles McE[v]oy vicar of Gayling’, Irish Monastic Possessions. Tá fothracha an tseanteampaill féin suite in bf Áth na Croise (#27971). Caomhnaíodh ainm na dúiche Gaelaí seo Gailine in ainm an mhainéir Shasanaigh anseo, e.g. 1611 ‘the manor of Gallen-Ridgway’ (< Thomas Ridgeway) (féach bf Baile na Coille (#27765)). Is dócha gurb é an áit seo atá i gceist ag Tadhg Ó Neachtain in 1744c ‘Ngaidhilin Laoighis Ui Mhórdha / fo shlíabh na groitheadh seóideach’ (LN G135).
