Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    Is gaelú í an fhoirm Ghaeilge ar logainm Béarla ó bhunús
    Is struchtúr an-chomónta i gCo. na Mí é an téarma lonnaíochta Angla-Normannach -tún (-town ní ba dhéanaí) á cháiliú le hainm pearsanta nó le sloinne. Uaireanta, in ionad logainmneacha Béarla a aistriú go Gaeilge (e.g. Baile an Chrúisigh / Cruicetown), tá fianaise ann gur cuireadh logainmneacha áirithe Béarla in oiriúint do chóras fóinéimeach na Gaeilge le hathréimniú na teanga (ón 14ú haois amach). Is sampla den ghaelú sin atá sa logainm seo: ‘Galestowne’ (1569), ‘Gallston’ (1569), Gallestowne (1654), ‘Gallaston na gcrann, baile gann gortach’ Ainmleabhar, scríofa le peann luaidhe, Gallastan Ainmleabhar, i ndúch; cf. Gaulstown / Baile an Ghallaigh i gCo. Phort Láirge
