Explanatory note
  • Gaeilge

    the tillage-plot of the wood, wooded height?

    ‘Talamh ard (coillteach), coill, ceann tíre’ an réimse bríonna atá leis an bhfocal ros i logainmneacha de ghnáth. Dhealródh sé gur minicí an bhrí ‘talamh ard (coillteach)’ leis sa taobh seo tíre; ní mór an t-ardán atá anseo ach féach an mionainm The Hill SO i ndeisceart an bhaile fearainn.

    Tharla gur ceapach atá san aicmitheoir anseo, áfach, d'fhéadfaí ros “flax-seed, linseed” a chur san áireamh freisin (cf. www.dil.ie s.v. 2 ros).

    Cf. bf An Ros (#27887).
