Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    rough land

    Gné de chanúintí an oirdheisceart ab ea -bh/-mh leathan deiridh a bheith báite i ndiaidh consain leachtaigh. Is dócha gur cailleadh -bh- tar éis -r- i lár an logainm seo — i gceantair eile bheifí ag súil le guta fada /uː/ a theacht ina áit, ach is cosúil go raibh sé balbh ar fad anseo.

    Cf. bf Garbhach (#28855).
