Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    Is cosúil gur sloinne é an cáilitheoir Ring(s)- anseo ach más ea ní léir cé acu sloinne Gaelach nó sloinne iasachta é. Is réiteach fuaime ar an eilimint seo atá i Rinn.

    Mionainmneacha ar an léarscáil:
    Needleford Bridge SO an t-ainm ar an droichead thar an sruthán ar theorainn thiar an bhaile fearainn. Níl needle róchoitianta i logainmneacha Shasana (cf. http://kepn.nottingham.ac.uk/) ach tagann snáthaid féin i gceist i logainmneacha Gaeilge, e.g. sl Cró na Snáthaide (#1394164) (Ci), mng Cuas na Snáthaide (#1394154) (Ci); l Loch na Snáthaide (#1396573) (DG); bf, oil Snáthadán (#20883; #20883) (Ga).
