    the bad ground?

    Ní léir bunús an logainm seo * Raplach. Tá meascán de dhrochthalamh i dtuaisceart an bhaile fearainn (www.epa.ie). Tá an drochthalamh céanna le fáil in bf An Ropach (#28886) in oirdheisceart an chontae agus d’fhéadfadh sé go bhfuil na hainmneacha gaolmhar.

    Cf. bf An Raplach, ~ Thuaidh/Theas (#46645) ( 15) agus bf Roplach (#30896) (Lm 56, 57) nach cinnte a mbrí ach oiread.
