Sé do bheatha, a bhean Uí Fhionnagáin,
Thiocfadh leat ainm do fhear chéile a úsáid mar phairt d'ainm do theach úr,
mar shampla;

Hello, Mrs Finnegan,
You could use your husband's surname as part of the name you give your new house.
for example;

Cábán Uí Fhionnagáin...Finnegan's Cabin
Ailt Uí Fhionnagáin... Finnegan's Glen
Coillte Uí Fhionnagáin...Finnegan's Wood

Rud eile atá le feiceáil ar fud na tíre, nó ainmneacha na naomh
mar shampla;

Throughout the country you will see the names of saints used,
for examle;

Ard Mhuire......,.St. Mary's height/point
Cúan Phadráig....St. Patrick's Quay
