Nóta mínithe
  • Gaeilge

    (the island of the) inlet, creek?
    (the island of the) forked place(s)?

    Ní cinnte cé acu ainmfhocal iolra nó cnuasainm is bunfhoirm don logainm seo, ná cé acu ‘góilín’ nó ‘ladhar’ an bhrí a bhí i gceist an chéad lá. ‘Ladhar’ an míniú de réir an traidisiúin, agus cruth an oileáin faoi thagairt.

  • English

    (the island of the) inlet, creek?
    (the island of the) forked place(s)?

    It is unclear whether the original form of this placename was a plural common noun or a collective noun. Nor is it clear whether the sense originally intended was ‘(forked) inlet, creek’ or ‘fork, forked place’. Tradition explains the name as ‘fork’, in reference to the shape of the island.
