Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    rear town?

    Níl brí cúl- soiléir anseo.

    Níor cheart cúil “corner, nook” a chur as an áireamh mar chéad eilimint. Féach go bhfuil an baile fearainn seo suite le hais bf Baile Uí Ghamhdáin — d’fhéadfadh sé gur giorrúchán é seo ar Cúil Bhaile (Uí Ghamhdáin) “the corner, nook of Baile (Uí Ghamhdáin)” nó a leithéid. (Cf. bf Cúil Bhaile Uí Ógáin (#27917)).
