    the town of the wood

    Níl trácht ar reilig ná ar aon iarsmaí eaglasta eile anseo agus cuirimid suas de cill mar cháilitheoir dá bharr.

    (Ní hionann an baile fearainn seo agus 1838 ‘Galenridgeway al’ Ballynekill’ san Ainmleabhar (= bf Baile na Coille (#27765) i nDíseart Gailine).)

    Ainmneacha stairiúla:
    Is dócha go bhfuil baint ag ainm an bhaile fearainn seo le 1622 ‘Killart’ CPR, 1639 ‘Killart’ LS Uí Dhuinn, 1660 ‘Killarte’ BSD, 1662 ‘Killart’ Inq. Lag., 1841 Killart House SO < Coill Airt (?) “the wood of Art (ainm pearsanta)” (cf. 1607 ‘Teig mcArt of the Derry’, ‘Tirrelaghe mcArt O Doyne’ 4km soir, 1550 ‘Arthur mcCahir O Doyne of Teaghynishe’ 5km siar ó dheas).
