Explanatory note
  • Gaeilge

    the woods of (the territory of) Laois
    Laois — ainm dúiche

    Suite ar an teorainn idir Laoighis agus Oireadh (#1415) in Uí Fhailghe lastuaidh. Is i Laidin atá an tagairt is luaithe dá maireann .i. 1549 ‘bosci sive sylvae de Leyse’, ach is féidir talamh slán a dhéanamh de gur logainm Gaeilge atá anseo. De réir sean-léarscáil Cotton (1563c), bhí coillte sa taobh seo tire.
