  • Gaeilge

    Ní léir brí an ainm. Tá áiteacha éagsúla den ainm ar fud na tíre (agus iad béarlaithe mar Limnagh, Luimnagh, Lumnagh agus Limerick). Dar le P.W. Joyce, "Luimneach ... signifies a bare or barren spot of land" (The Origin and History of Irish Names of Places II) agus lean údair áirithe ó shin é, ach féach A Dictionary of the Irish Language (www.dil.ie) s.n. luimnech: 'cloaked, mantled', 'shielded' (lumman).

The onomastic literature (The Metrical Dindsenchas III 274) attempted to explain the name in a number of ways, connecting it in particular to luimnigthe (‘cloaked') and luimnechda (‘shielded'). It is said elsewhere (e.g. Onomasticon Goedelicum 508 and Mac Spealáin, Aos Trí Muighe 20) that the name originally referred to the mouth of the Shannon
