Explanatory note
  • Gaeilge

    the town of Mistéal of the tree stumps
    Mistéal -- ainm pearsanta. Ní léir cé acu le baile nó le Mistéal a ghabhann an foirceann na dTamhan. B'fhéidir gur chirte mar fhoirm Baile an Mhistéalaigh na dTamhan (cf. 1588 'Ballenvistallenedowne', Fiant; 1618 'Ballenvistallendowne', Calendar of Patent Rolls)

  • English

    the town of Mistéal of the tree stumps
    Mistéal -- personal name. It is unclear whether the element na dTamhan goes with baile or Mistéal. Perhaps a more correct form would be Baile an Mhistéalaigh na dTamhan (cf. 1588 'Ballenvistallenedowne', Fiant; 1618 'Ballenvistallendowne', Calendar of Patent Rolls)
