Unfortunately, this website is useless as name documentation.  The names
are all normalized to the form used currently, and there are no dates
indicating when the name began being used.  All this shows is that a name
is now in use.

People who want medieval Irish names would be much better off using the
links at http://www.itd.umich.edu/~ximenez/s.gabriel/docs/#ireland (part
of the S. Gabriel Library).
