English small ring-fort

Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the (little) ring-fort of Cuileannán
    Cuileannán — ainm pearsanta

    Ní féidir an sloinne Ó Cuileannáin a chur as an áireamh anseo. Ní léir an bhfuil baint ag an logainm leis an móta in oirthear an bhaile fearainn (www.archaeology.ie).

    Mionainmneacha ar an léarscáil:
    Níl bunús an cháilitheora soiléir in ainm an tobair Toberkeegaun SO. Tobar Mhic Aogáin “the well of Mac Aogáin”, b’fhéidir; nó d’fhéadfaí Tobar Caocháin “well of (the) boghole” a chur san áireamh toisc go bhfuil sé suite ar thalamh phortaigh (www.epa.ie).
