Explanatory note
  • Gaeilge

    the town of An Daineach
    An Daineach — ón sloinne Dain (< Dane, Dann?; < d'Aveni?)
      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. Is é an focal Gaeilge a fhreagraíonn do -town i logainmeacha den chineál sin ná baile, agus rinneadh roinnt mhaith de na logainmneacha Béarla seo a ghaelú ar an múnla baile + ainm. Féach na tagairtí stairiúla seo a leanas: ‘Daneston’ (1552), ‘Danistowne’ (1654), Baile Dainne Ainmleabhar, scríofa le peann luaidhe (1836).
    Bhí an paróiste seo i seilbh mhuintir d'Aveni (‘de Aveni(e)', 'de Auini', Chart. St. Mary’s Abbey, Dublin, I 144, 157, 158, 229, 253; II 152), agus b'fhéidir gur foirm den sloinne seo atá sa logainm. Cf. ‘Adam Dan’, ibid., II 335.
