    the tumulus of the alder-tree?

    Is deacair tuaim “tumulus” a aithint thar tom “bush” i logainmneacha béarlaithe gan béim an ghutha orthu. Sa chás seo d’fhéadfaí tóin “bottomland” a chur san áireamh freisin.
    Mar sin féin measaimid go mb’fhéidir gur fearr a réitíonn 1805 ‘Thoum Farna’, 1838 ‘Toomfara’ (atá ábhairín níos luaithe ná an tAinmleabhar) le tuaim.
