Letter to Fr. Canice Bourke OFM Cap. (1890-1969), guardian, Holy Trinity Friary, from Michael Murphy, solicitor, 53 South Mall, Cork, regarding the rent payable on premises on ‘Island Nagay’. Murphy explains that this ‘is a corruption of an old Irish name with which lawyers are familiar in the old deeds they meet, and which I have always found to mean the levelled ground between the two branches of the river, and always close to the south channel, and referring to the area between Parnell Bridge and Parliament Bridge’.
