Two other entries probably related to places along the same river but none
of them ecclesiastical (although Urney is superficially somewhat promising):
claidech; cath Claidighe etir Cenél Eogain 7 Conaill; Clady, vil. 4 m. S. of
Lifford, Fm. i. 390; al. bellum Cloitigi, Au. i. 266; it is in p. of urney,
d. cloitighe; Dunglady, p. Maghera, c. Derry, Au. i. 486, O'D., Fm. ii. 698;
al. D. Glaidighe.
And also there is the river Clody in Wexford which runs into the Slaney at
Bunclody. The river systems in SE Ireland had many ecclesiastical
foundations along their banks, so that river could also be considered. Here
an entry for that one:
g. cloitighe; Imraithech of, Mi., Ui.; vale of r. Clody nr Newtownbarry,
Wexf., Od.; cf. "Newtownbarry, al. Bun Clody," Pgi. g. coille; al. Glenn na
nGealt, Cf. p. 65; nr Ventry in Kerry (?).
