Hello Old Irish Listmembers,
Can you please tell me what word the original Irish texts used for
the Fenian personage "Red Ridge" ? The adjective red is easy, DEARG. But
there are sixteen words for ridge in Irish, from BUAIC, BUINNE, CI/RI/N,
COIRB, DROIM, DROIMNE, DROMAINN, DROMCHLA, DROMLACH, FORMNA, GRUGA/N,
IOMAIRE, MAOILEANN, SEATACH, SITHBHE, and SCOTH.
Any idea why a Fenian personage is called 'Red Ridge" ? Is this a
reference to a reddish, rocky ridge somewhere in the mountains of Ireland?
Thanks for your help.
