    level wood?

    Comhfhocal é seo de clár “level plain” + coill “wood”, is cosúil. Tagann an logainm céanna i gceist i gContae an Dúin (#66581) agus i gContae Thiobraid Árann (#46111). Rinneadh an logainm seo a atuiscint mar a bheadh ainm cnoic Clara Hill. Cf. Ó Crualaoich, Logainmneacha na hÉireann IV (LG) s.v. Tarahill.
