Encyclopedia

  • Henry II appears to have granted the territory of Loch na n-Airne to one Barry ancestor of the Kildare and Desmond Geraldines, but he handed his claim to Jocylen De Angulo - known by the name of Gaisdelbh, hence Mac Gaisdelbh, taken by his descendants to 'Gaelicize' their name. — “Aghamore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”, en.wikipedia.org
  • OTOH I don't know whether Bairbre de Brún or Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin chose to gaelicize their names from English originals, or have had Irish versions since birth. In the latter case, I don't believe Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin should have Kevin Keelan. — “Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style (Ireland-related articles”, en.wikipedia.org
