This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1875 edition. Excerpt: ...of the word tonn, for here the "Tuns" most truly means the waves or billows. This term gives names to places by rivers and lakes as well as by the sea: and in many cases the t is changed to d by eclipse. There is a lake in the parish of Moyrus in Connemara, called Loughannadown, i. e.

On the western shore of Lough Swilly in the parish of Clondavaddog, Donegal, there is a little hamlet called Bunnaton, the bun or end of the wave--a name which probably was originally applied to the highest point reached by the surge in the little bay. A varied form of the genitive is seen in Derrintin, the name of a small lake and townland near the Erriff river, four miles above Leenane at the head of the Killeries; Doire-an-tuinn, the oak-wood of the wave.
