Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the ridge of An Tirialach?
    An Tirialach — ón sloinne Tirial (< Tyrrell na nAngla-Normannach)

    Níl bunús an cháilitheora cinnte anseo. Níl an t-ainm Gaelach Toirrdhealbhach (litriú clasaiceach) le cur as an áireamh, b’fhéidir, más Toirealach an réadú a bhí air sa taobh seo tíre. Cf. 1660 ‘A[tt]ydermond M‘Terlaugh’ [Áit Tí Dhiarmaid Mhic Thoirealaigh] > bf Atteterrila (#6482) (Cl), bf Cluain Toirealaigh (#42162) (UF). Tá guta léirithe i ndiaidh an aicmitheora i gcuid den fhianaise, m.sh. 1838 ‘Drimateril’, ón mbunús Droim an Tirialaigh seans. Cf. b Bealach an Tirialaigh (#1413970) (IM).
