SourcesBarrabol: Halliday pers. comm.

Whilst Brownlie gives this as ‘Goirtean Dòmhnaill’, Halliday states that ‘Barrabol later grew eastwards to include the sub-townships of ScG Goirtean Dhòmhnaill ‘the field of Donald’, and Baile Mhic ‘Eòtha’.’ < http://www.tireeplacenames.org/barrapol/barrabol/ >

The name wold have a –rr- if from ON barr, ‘barley’ which seems appropriate.
