NOTE: For convenience sake this online version has converted the old Irish letters used in the original text to the roman alphabet, and exchanged the lenited or dotted consonants to their equivalents in the latter, e.g. the lenited (or aspirated) dotted "c" has been altered to "ch", and the dotted "g" to "gh", etc. All the entries for men, women, and surnames, are complete in this version, but only the supporting text deemed requisite for an adequate understanding has been included. For the full account consult Sloinnte Gaedheal is Gall: Irish Names and Surnames by Rev. Patrick Woulfe, 1923.
