Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the ring-fort of Bigne?
    Bigne — ainm pearsanta, is dócha

    Tá an t-ainm Bigne Caoch le fáil i measc mhuintir Osraí in Leabhar Mór na nGenealach 481.1 — tá an baile fearainn seo suite ar theorainn na dúiche sin. Is cosúil gur cheartú é 1552 ‘Lysnebegnet alias Lisvigyn’ ar sheanfhoirm lochtach 1549 ‘Lysnebegenet’, ach ní féidir a chur as an áireamh ar fad gur forbairt ón ainm ban Beagnait/Beagnaid atá ann.
