Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the ford of the cairn?

    Tagann leagan Gaeilge anuas chugainn ón mbliain 1606 .i. ‘A naith charrna’ (féach Nic Dhonnchadha ‘The Medical School of Aghmacart’ in Ossory, Laois and Leinster 2 (2006) le haghaidh tuilleadh eolais faoin bhfoinse seo). Téann fianaise an logainm siar go dtí an 15ú haois, m.sh. 1494 ‘Hacharna’. Tuairimíonn Ó Murchadha in Laois: History and Society 40 gurb ionann é seo agus an logainm stairiúil ‘Áth Coirthíne’ (féach Foclóir Stairiúil Áitainmneacha na Gaeilge s.n.; cf. bf Coirthín (#28458)).
