Explanatory note

    (oak-)wood of (the) foreigner

    Níl an t-ainm pearsanta Goll le cur as an áireamh ar fad. Cf. 1141 ‘Donnchadh mac Guill Gaibhle .i. Ua Conchobhair Failge’ sna hAnnála. Ó thaobh na bhfoirmeacha béarlaithe de, díol spéise an litriú -gill i bhformhór glan na dtagairtí nuair is cosúil gur /gəil/ an fuaimniú ó lár an 17ú haois ar a dhéanaí (1659 ‘Derrygu[y]le’).
