    the eminent place

    Tá an dara siolla doiléir i bhfuaimniú an lae inniu (cf. 2004 /ˈgrenɪn/), faoi thionchar an litrithe chaighdeánaithe Bhéarla ní foláir. Tá sé le tuiscint as na foirmeacha 1838 ‘Grie-naun’ agus 1905 ‘Greenawn’, áfach, go raibh an guta fada sa dara siolla níos soiléire tráth.

    Cf. A. Ó Maolfabhail in Dinnseanchas VI 69.
