Pinkman: "Achadh-a’-Bhile = Field of the old tree. Bile – a scared or historic tree, a tree in a fort or beside a holy well. Trees, under which trees were inaugurated or games celebrated, were so named, and were held in great veneration by the people. No greater triumph could be achieved by a trip than to cut down the inauguration tree of its enemies, and no outrage was more keenly resented or more quickly avenged. "
