Thread Name: Meaning of 'The Coolin'
Subject: RE: Meaning of 'The Coolin'
the thread I mentioned above has been missed in the list of links at the top of the page, though maybe the omission will have been rectified by the time you see this message. I was wrong in my attempt to remember how Ballinagar was spelled in the thread title. But that has inspired me to find out the towns name. There are Ballinagars in Counties Leitrim (I think), Roscommon and Offaly. In Roscommon and Offaly at least, they are officially called "Béal Átha na gCarr".
mouth of the ford of the (river) Carr, I suppose

There's a Ballygar called Béal Átha Ghártha and in Dublin there's a Baile na gCorr
