Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the hill of An Róch
    An Róch — ón sloinne (< le Roe)

    In ainneoin na tagairte 1837 ‘Knockaruadh — brown slate quarry’ in Lewis, Topographical Dictionary, is é is dóichí ná gur sloinne atá sa dara heilimint anseo. Féach go bhfuil seisear den sloinne Roe luaite sa pharóiste seo in Griffith’s Valuation. Tá cuid mhaith samplaí de bhailte fearainn darb ainm Baile an Róigh “the town(land) of An Róch (< le Roe)” in áiteanna eile (CC, CD, Co, LG, Lm, Mí).
