    pasture of (the) black (poor?) land?

    Seo é 1654c ‘a gapp upon the ridge, where there is alsoe a difference [.i. imreas teorann] in a parcel called Knockone by the name Condally’ sa chur síos ar theorainn an tSráidbhaile in CS X 12 (leg. ‘Clondully’?).

    An eiscir ar imeall theas an bhaile fearainn an ‘ridge’ atá i gceist thuas. Díreach lastuaidh den eiscir seo léirítear paiste beag de thalamh lochach ar léarscáil www.epa.ie ach ní réiteodh na foirmeacha stairiúla le dúloch (< dubh + loch), gin. dúlocha “black lake”. Cuir i gcás comhfhocal eile .i. dubh + an iarmhír -lach > dúlach “black (poor?) land”, mar atá le fáil in bf Loch Dúlaigh (#5046) sa Chabhán, mar shampla, agus b’fhéidir in bf Dúlach (#16854) i dtuaisceart Bhaile Átha Cliath freisin.
