Explanatory note
  • Gaeilge

    the little bog(land) of the cattle-fold, summer pasture

    Is gnách talamh ard a bheith i gceist le logainmneacha a bhfuil buaile iontu. Tá paiste de thalamh portaigh in iarthar an bhaile fearainn (féach ‘peaty gleys acidic’, www.epa.ie).

    Ní heol dúinn aon tagairt d’ainm Gaeilge an dúin atá suite ar bharra an chnoic i lár an bhaile fearainn (cf. www.archaeology.ie). Ar imeall thoir an bhaile fearainn atá an t-imfhálú a thug ainm do bf Ráth Easpaig (#28213) lastoir.

    Féach bf An Seanráth (#28214).
