Notes

The earliest form of this place-name suggests that it contains G ceann 'head, end', rather than G cill 'church' which later forms suggest the name has been assimilated to, probably as a result of it being a parish name. As it does not seem to be a cill-name, there is no reason to suppose (as modern speculation has suggested) that this is the 'church of St Earnán'.
