Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the ford of the mountain
    Is cosúil gur faoi thionchar ainm an bhaile fearainn Teampall an tSléibhe [par. Ráth Rónáin] a d'fhás an fhoirm Áth an tSléibhe i dtosach an 19ú haois (cf. 1826 'Athlea', History of Limerick) in áit na seanfhoirme Áth Té, nó a leithéid.

  • English

    the ford of the mountain
    The form Áth an tSléibhe (cf. 1826 'Athlea', History of Limerick) developed from an older form Áth Té, or similar, apparently under the influence of the townland name Teampall an tSléibhe / Templeathea [par. Ráth Rónáin / Rathronan]. See also Joyce, The Origin and History of Irish Names of Places II
