Explanatory note
  • Gaeilge

    pasture of (the) ?blind plain

    Ní léir brí caoch anseo. B'fhéidir gurb amhlaidh gur cíoch atá sa chéad eilimint den cháilitheoir: cf. 1100c 'Coemnat Cula Cichmaig[e]' v.l. 'Cluana Cichmaighi' in FSÁG 6 s.n. Cúil Chíochmhaighe.

  • English

    pasture of (the) ?blind plain

    The meaning of caoch (usually ‘(pur)blind’) is unclear here. Perhaps the first element of the compound is cíoch “breast”: cf. 1100c 'Coemnat Cula Cichmaig[e]' v.l. 'Cluana Cichmaighi' in FSÁG 6 s.n. Cúil Chíochmhaighe.
