Explanatory note
  • Gaeilge

    Is aistriúchán í an fhoirm Ghaeilge.
    Barr na Coille, 'the top of the wood', b'fhéidir, an seanainm atá le feiscint in iontrálacha 1654 agus 1659. Bhí muilte iarainn anseo: féach an t-ainm Béarla 1819 'Forgelands', 1841 'Old Forge lands'; agus an mionainm Gaeilge Muileann an Iarainn, 'the mill of the iron', san Ainmleabhar (1841) agus in Place-Names of Decies, 60.
