    Ní raibh bunús dá laghad ag Seosamh Laoide ‘Imeach’ a mholadh in Post-Sheanchas I (1905) — deir sé in Post-Sheanchas II (1911) gurbh é a bhí ann ‘buille fá thuairim ó ainm atá i litriughadh an tSacsbhéarla’ (sin é is brí leis an nod ‘[B.]’). Ach ghlac Oifig an Phoist leis an bhfoirm sin agus bhí sé fós le fáil in eagrán 1971 de Eolaí an Phoist , in ainneoin go raibh an fhoirm oifigiúil thuas, atá bunaithe ar thaighde cuimsitheach, socraithe in Ainmneacha Gaeilge na mBailte Poist (1969).

    Mionainmneacha ar an léarscáil:

    1. Curragh Wood SO < An Currach “the wet land”. Níl ach sampla amháin eile den ainm seo sa bharúntacht, logainm stairiúil a bhí le fáil i mainéar Lé .i. 1518/9 ‘The Corray 40 acres’ Kildare Rental, 1540c ‘villata de Coragh 40’ Crown Survey, 1575 ‘Curraghe, or Curra, alias Loghclonybrocke’ JKAS.
    2. 1549 ‘Clonenenane’ CarrMS , 1841 Clonemone SO, Clonemone House SO < Cluain Móna (?) “pasture of (the) bogland”.
    3. The Clucker SO < An Clochar (?) “the stony place”, coillín díreach lastuaidh den teach mór.
    4. 1549 ‘Kyllintogher’ CarrMS, 1838 ‘It is said that there was another little church called Killeen-a-toagher (little church at the causeway)’ LSO II 239, 1841 Killeenatogher SO < Cillín an Tóchair “the little church, graveyard of the causeway”. Luann Mag Eochagáin 1638c ‘capella S. Joannis Baptistæ de Imo’ i measc ainmneacha teampall eile sa bharúntacht seo (Dinnseanchas II 31). Léiríonn DS/BSD 1655 ‘Mance Land in Imoe [2 acra]’ díreach le hais teampall gan díon. Níl siad suite san áit a léirítear Killeenatogher Church (Site of) SO díreach laisteas den chaisleán, áfach, ach in oirdheisceart an bhaile fearainn san áit a bhfuil (5.) Skibboon Clump SO < Sciob Eoin (?? as Eoin Baiste [1638c] nó Sceach —) agus (6.) Togher SO < An Tóchar “the causeway” féin, mar a bhfuil an fo-bhaile Killeenatogher SO marcáilte. Léiríonn Cotton Map (1563c) bealach tríd na coillte idir ‘Balybryttis’ agus ‘Culuancher’.
    5. 1841 Lough Lina SO, 1903c ‘Loughlynah’ JKAS IV 196 < Loch Laighnigh (?) “the lake of Laighneach”.
