    river-meadow of (the) corner, nook

    Baile fearainn mór é seo atá suite taobh thuaidh den Bhearú sa lá atá inniu ann. Féach Coote in 1814 ‘Controversy Land … owing to a controversy that happened between some of the then owners of the then Lordship of Lea … and one of the ancestors of the Marquis of Drogheda about the right of property to the land (namely Ullard and Inchicooly)’ Stat. Surv. I 547. Cf. 1783 ‘Old Course of the Barrow’ Taylor agus 1907c Old Course of the River Barrow SO 25″ ar an teorainn thiar thuaidh.

    Mionainmneacha ar an léarscáil:
    1. Bella Bridge SO 6″, Baylough Br. SO 25″ < Béal Átha (?) “the ford-mouth”, os comhair bf Coolnafeeragh i gContae Chill Dara.
    2. Scorraus Br. SO 6″, Scaravagh Br. SO 25″ < Scarbhach (??) “shingly (ford)” in iarthuaisceart an bhaile fearainn i dteorainn le bf Doire Liath i gCill Dara (cf. bf Scarbhach (#66618) (Dn). Ní bheifí ag súil le béarlú -bh- láir mar -v- sa chuid seo den tír, áfach — d’fhéadfaí * Scarbháth < scarbh + áth a thuairimiú dá bharr sin. Cf. bf Scarroon i dTigh na hInse.

    Bhailigh Liam Price roinnt mionainmneacha anseo nach bhfuil ar an léarscáil SO, mar atá:
    3. Coolyeenan < Cúil Fhíonáin (?) “the corner, nook of Fíonán”.
    4. Galnagrag < Gabhal na Gráige (?).
    5. The Gowlyauns < An Gabhlán “the little (river-)fork”.
    6. The Pulliaghs < An Pollach “the place of holes”.
    Díol spéise réadú -l- leathan na Gaeilge mar -ly-/-li- /lj/ sa bhéarlú sa dá mhionainm dheireanacha seo (5, 6). Cf. gabhlóg /goulʹoːg/, lán an mhála /lɑːn ə vɑːlʹə/ ag Ó Conchubhair, ‘Focail Ghaedhilge ó Dharmhagh Ua nDuach’ (.i. bf Darú (#27957)) in Éigse V 273.
