Pléann Liam Price an t-ainm san alt leis ‘Place-name study as applied to history’, in Journal of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland lxxix (1949), lgh.26–29 (ach féach leis K.W. Nicholls, Dinnseanchas III 333). Féach leis ainm an tsrutháin Sruthán Bhuaile Shéamais Bhuí/Boleyhemushboy Brook sa pharóiste céanna.
