Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the town of Raighleán?

    Taispeánann na foirmeacha stairiúla ón 17ú haois, m.sh. 1621 ‘Ballerilinmore’, nach é an sloinne Gaelach Ó Raghallaigh atá sa dara heilimint anseo mar a thabharfadh leagan Béarla an lae inniu le fios. Tá sé le tuiscint as struchtúr 1601 ‘Rylenstowne’ gur ainm pearsanta nó sloinne atá sa cháilitheoir. Ní léir a bhunús, áfach — gaelú ar ainm pearsanta Angla-Normannach, b’fhéidir.
