I copy the above from the original in my possession. It is of interest as a contrast
of the rates of wages paid in Cork then and now. In 17 10 a skilled carpenter earned
2/6 per day ; a sawyer, 1/6 ; labourers, 6d. ; porters or messengers, 3d. ; and unskilled
labourers the same ; and the foreman overseer, 1/6 per day.

proportion as the skilled mechanic, for here is a receipt for a "quarters allowance."

Some Stray Notes. — The writer of the paper " Folk-Lore of the Months," in
the December number of the Journal, derives Knawhill, a townland in the parish of
Knocktemple, barony of Duhallow, from Cr)4ttJ fujl. This, I think, must be a
mistake, for O'Donovan, in his supplement to O'Reillys Dictionary, gives Cl}4''JC0lll
as the Irish form of this name. It means the wood of bones. There was another and
better known Ct)4U)C0]U, in the parish of Kilshane, barony of Clanwilliam, about a
mile and a half east of the town of Tipperary, now corrupted to Cleighile. It lay near
the old road leading from Cashel to Cork. This is evident from the following passage
in the Annals of the Four Masters : — " 1600. O'Neill marched from Cashel, westward
across the river Suir, and set out for Kinsale, by the route of Cnamh-Choill and
Sliabh na Muice, keeping to the east side of Sliabh Claire, and passing through
Bearna Dhearg, into Clangibbon and Roche's Country." Dr. Todd, in the Wars of
G.G., translates CT)4ri)C0)U, " hazle or nutwood." I think, however, he must have
confused Crjdlij, "a bone," with Ctjort), "a nut." Lough Gur has a rival for the posses-
sion of the impatient serpent. Miss Banim, in Here and There Through Ireland, has the
following account of him : — "There was only one sarpint left in the entire universal
island, an' that one St. Patrick chained deep down in a lake on the top of the Galtee
mountains, that you may have heard tell of away in Tipperary. St. Patrick told him
he would never leave that until he himself would come of a Monday to set him free.
Every Monday morning the sarpint comes to the surface of the lake and calls out, ' Is
it time yet, Patrick ?' Patrick answers, ' It's not the Monday yet.' When the sarpint
says, ' Is fadha Luan e, Padraic' (It's a long Monday, Patrick), an' sinks again for
another week." When preparing the paper on " Lough Gur," for the Journal, I con-
versed with several old people living beside the lake, but I did not get any tales of
serpents from them. I heard numerous stories of various appearances of the Earl
of Desmond, and another visitant, whom the people call the Dwarf. The latter appears
at rarer intervals than Earl Gerald. He is generally described as having a long red
beard and whiskers trailing behind him. The people speak pretty freely of the Earl,
but they have a certain dread of this dwarf, and do not like to talk about him. The
lake is said to belong to him, and he, I am informed, appeared to and threatened two
men recently who were taking more than their fair share of fish from the lake. The
story of the dwarf is an old one, older, perhaps, than the Desmond legend. The old
people consider the lake is named from an Irish chief, and they may possibly have
taken "gair"in its usual meaning of " short," and thus Lough Gair might mean the
lake of the short fellow. I consulted several competent Irish scholars as to the
meaning of the name of the lake, but they could only confess their ignorance, so, on
the principle that it is better to have guessed and lost than never to have guessed at
all, I gave some possible explanations in the Journal. O'Donovan mentions the name
of the lake in his supplement to O'Reillys Dictionary, but gives no hint as to the
meaning. Gair, meaning "head," occurs in a line quoted by O'Connellan from one of the
Seabright MSS. in Trinity College, Dublin. Of me 2lm4U5er) 5lllT)5el, 34m 5Uf
51161)46, "I am Amergin Glungel, of hoary head and gray beard." Dr. Joyce gives



NOTES AND QUERIES. 43

many instances in Irish Names, in which Cor, meaning a "round hill," occurs, and
Dineley names the high hill on which the Munster fort was built, Carrigmore ; so,
despite the dwarf, the fort may have been named from the hill, and the name after-
wards transferred to the lake. The late Mr. John Fitzgerald, who knew a great deal
about the lake, and who has been referred to in such kind terms by Mr. Robert Day in
the Journal, was of opinion that Gair was a contraction of a longer word. There was
a celebrated fort in the Dalcassian territory, which has not been identified, called Dun
Doghair. In a poem, quoted by O'Curry from Dubhthach na Lugair, a.d., 432, it is
referred to, and in such a way as to put it, I think, on a level with Cruachain and
Emhain, the Connaught and Ulster capitals. In the Wars of G.G., Brian Boroimhe
is reported as saying " that his grandfather, Lorcan, would not permit the seven great
battalions to burn the ford of U. Doghair for four days and four nights.'" Dr. Todd
takes U to be written for Ui, " descendants," but it may be a mistake in the manuscript
for Dun. The name being written Dun Gair in the Book of Rights appears, however,
to be against this explanation. O'Donovan identities two of the seats of the King of
Cashel as having been at Lough Gur. These were CathairChinn Chon and Dun Gair.
Between these two forts, in both the prose and poetical list of the Book of Rights,
there is a fort named Dun Fir Aen Cholca. From its position in the lists, this fort, I
consider, must also have been at Lough Gur, and, perhaps, is to be identified with the
strongly-fortified fort on Knockfinnel. It had the same outer walls as are visible to-
day surrounding Dun ^Enghuis, in Aran More. Another interesting point of connection
between these two forts is, that Asal, who settled at Toryhill, was brother to /Enghus,
the traditional Firbolg builder of Dun /Enghuis. Another of the Munster forts of the
King of Cashel was named Ebliu, from Ebliu, daughter of Guare, and wife of Mairid,
King of Munster, about the close of the first century of our era. Ebliu is the subject of
a peculiarly wild legend, which is related in the "Lebor na h-uidre." She induced her
stepson, Eochaidh, to carry her off, and Eochaidh and she went to live in the district,
then called Liath-muine, but now covered by Lough Neagh, which was caused by the
overflow of a magic well. Lough Neagh took its name from Eochaidh. It is a con-
traction of Loch n-Echach, that is " the lake of Eochaidh." Now, about a mile north of
Murroe, in the county Limerick, there is a conspicuous hill, on the top of which there is
an earthen fort, marked in the Ordnance Map, "Lis Gorey," but which the people call the
fort of John Guare, this John Guare having been a giant who lived here in the old
times, and who had a brother living on the top of a hill, about three miles to the east.
Beside these two hills flows a little stream named Ahanetawney (the little ford of the
green field). When Guare's brother wished to communicate with him he threw some
milk into the stream. A few miles to the north lie the Slieve Felim mountains. These
mountains are twelve in number, and the old name is Sljab l)-6blji)'ij JMoMJ)
5l)U4)Ite, "the mountain range of Ebliu, the daughter of Guare." As John Guare is not
a very dignified name to bestow upon a giant, I would suggest that John Guare is a
corruption of jr)5Jt)) 51)U4)|ie, and that Lis Gorey is the Ebliu of the Book of Rights.
