Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    vassals, rent-paying tribes
    Ón ainmfhocal déis ‘a vassal’ a shíolraigh Déise (uimhir iolra). Is é an bhrí atá le Déise de réir (Contributions to a) Dictionary of the Irish Language ná ‘vassal or rent-paying tribes’. De réir an scéil Toirche (.i. imirce) na nDéise, ar scríobhadh an leagan is ársa de i lár an 8ú haois, ruaigeadh na Déise as a bhfearann sinseartha i nDéise Breá (ónar eascair ainm an dá bharúntacht seo sa Mhí), sa tslí gur chuireadar fúthu i nDéise Mumhan. B’fhéidir nach bhfuil aon bhunús stairiúil leis an nasc seo idir an dá chine Dhéiseach, áfach
