Explanatory note

    the white hill

    Is cosúil gurb é an aidiacht fionn atá sa cháilitheoir anseo (cf. bf An Chúil Fhionn (#27863)).

    Díol spéise, mar sin, an litriú 1631 ‘Knockfane’, atá níos giorra d’fhuaimniú fionn i lár tíre (m.sh. bf Achadh Fionn > 1985c /ahiˈfaːn/ (#41248) (UF 6)) agus in oirthear Laighean (m.sh. sl Sliabh Fionn > Slayfonn (#113180) (CM 23), ‘Fan McCool’ i mBéarla na háite) ná don fhuaimniú sa chuid eile d’Osraí ná i dtuaisceart Tiobraid Árann (m.sh. fionn : /fʹuːn/, LASID II (CC), bf An Cnoc Fionn > Knockfune (#46509) ( 27)). Cf. 1838 ‘Aghafan’ faoi bf Achadh Fionn (#27813), 1619 ‘Fyraghfin otherwise Whitelayes’ faoi bf Fiarach Fionn (#27868)).
