Explanatory note
  • Gaeilge

    the ford-mouth of the curses
    Claonadh -cht > -rt i gcanúintí áirithe de chuid Chúige Uladh (atá le sonrú sa lá atá inniu ann i gcuid de Thír Chonaill) is cúis leis an bhfoirm Bhéarla. Níl baint dá laghad ag an ainm leis an speiceas lachan darb ainm mallard

  • English

    the ford-mouth of the curses
    The English form is a result of a tendency in some Ulster dialects (also to be found in parts of Donegal today) for -cht to become -rt. The name is completely unconnected to the species of duck mallard


This is in Northern Ireland.
