GUEST,Annraoi Gaelic parts in place names (22) RE: Nonmusic: Gaelic parts in place names 09 May 00


Mudguard: Don't apolgise. No-one of any consequence took offence. Snuffy: Knowledge is not free. I has to be earned and that process carries a price, be it in terms of time or money, effort or excercise of intelligence. Brendy: Thanks for the support. Place name study is a very complcated affair indeed. Even native speakers of Irish have different interpretations of place names e.g. Magheraroarty (anglicised version)in Donegal is either:- a) Machaire (an) Rabhartaigh : plain of the high tide. or b) Machaire Uí Rabhartaigh: (O')Roarty's plain. Place name study is fascinating indeed, but not for the linguistically naive or the wishful-thinker. Annraoi
