Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the town of Ó Buadáin
    Ó Buadáin — sloinne

    Tá an sloinne Ó Buadáin luaite leis an mórcheantar seo Osraí. Faighimid 1599 ‘Donochow O Bodan’ sna Fiants; cf. leis 1900c ‘O’Boodhawn’, foirm Ghaeilge den sloinne Booden a breacadh síos ó shean-Ghaeilgeoir in iarthuaisceart Chill Chainnigh (Studia Hibernica 31).

    Tá an sloinne céanna le fáil, de réir dealraimh, sna háiteanna darb ainm Baile Uí Bhuadáin i gCill Dara (#25676), i gCorcaigh (#515) agus i Luimneach (#30796). Féach, áfach, gur cosúil gur ainm eile ar fad .i. Baodán is bunús leis an logainm bf Baile Bhaodáin/Ballyboden (#17472) i mBaile Átha Cliath.
