Explanatory note
  • Gaeilge

    the new (river-)bank
    Cé gur mar An Port Nua a tuigeadh an t-ainm seo nuair a béarlaíodh é (1819 'Newport'), is cosúil ar an bhfianaise (1659 ‘Portonoe’; 1730 ‘Portonoe’; 1841 ‘port ó nó’) nach é sin a bhí ann ó cheart.

  • English

    the new (river-)bank
    Although this name was understood to represent An Port Nua when it was anglicised (1819 'Newport'), the evidence indicates that this was not the original name (1659 ‘Portonoe’; 1730 ‘Portonoe’; 1841 ‘port ó nó’).
