Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the pastures of Cua
    Cua — ainm pearsanta (ionann is Mochua)

    Is cosúil gurb é Mochua, mar is fearr aithne air, atá i gceist anseo. Féach bf, par Tigh Mochua (#28116, #1436) sa bharúntacht chéanna agus cf. 1650c ‘Inis Mo-Chua’ faoi bf Inis Cua (#34356) (ME 38).

    Ní fhéadfaí cuach “hollow” (féach www.dil.ie s.vv. cuäch, 1 cúach) a chur as an áireamh go hiomlán anseo, b’fhéidir, ach féach gur in iontrálacha na bliana 1576 amháin atá an -gh(e) deiridh le fáil.
