Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the church of the yew-tree

    Is deacair leaganacha béarlaithe de cill agus coill a idirdhealú, agus uaireanta ní mór dul i muinín leis an bhfianaise seandálaíochta. Dar leis an gCorragánach, is as seanteampall an bhaile seo a tháinig an t-umar atá suite ag Crois an Bhúrcaigh i dtuaisceart an bhaile fearainn: ‘the font was brought there from Killanure churchyard, wherever that was’ (History and Antiquities of the Diocese of Ossory II 152). Deirtí Aifreann ag an gcrosbhóthar seo le linn na bPéindlithe, más fíor.
