Explanatory note
  • Gaeilge

    the town of the physician
    leá (< leagha < lega na Sean-Ghaeilge) — foirm ghinideach de lia (< líaig na Sean-Ghaeilge)

    Is dócha gur bhunaigh an Donnabhánach a mholadh siúd ‘Baile an tSléibhe’ ar fhoirm an Down Survey, 1655 ‘Ballintlea’, ach dhealródh sé gur botún é sin le haghaidh *Ballinelea (cf. 1666 ‘Ballynelea’). Tá litriú úd an Down Survey agus c.1660 ‘Ballintea’ sa Book of Survey and Distribution gaolmhar, leis. Réitíonn na foirmeacha stairiúla eile agus fuaimniú an lae inniu le Baile an Leá.

    Cf. bf Baile an Leá (UF 11) (#41723) agus bf Cloch an Leá (CC 24) (#27135), ní rófhada ó bhaile.
