Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    Is gaelú í an fhoirm Ghaeilge ar logainm Béarla ó bhunús
    Uaireanta, in ionad na logainmneacha Béarla seo 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: ‘Shephowse’ (1540), Síopas Ainmleabhar, scríofa le peann luaidhe
