Etymology[edit]

The controversy about the name should not be included in the article as polemics. Hirpex (talk) 10:19, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

I've removed this section, as it was entirely unsourced. I've no problem with including a section about the meaning of the name, but only if it's supported by sources; this one was just one unsourced claim followed by another and a lengthy argument in the article over it. That sort of thing makes Wikipedia look bad. Robofish (talk) 14:22, 7 June 2011 (UTC)

Geology[edit]

I've rewritten the section as it was somewhat inaccurate and a little garbled. The 'McCallion Report' was a paper by W.J. McCallien in the Geological Magazine in 1930, where he pointed out the similarities of the Inishtrahull Gneiss to the Lewisian complex. Muir's work (with Daly) established a correlation with similarly aged metamorphic belts in southern Greenland and Scandinavia, rather than suggesting that Inishtrahull was originally part of Greenland. Note that I am currently working on turning the link to Rhinns complex blue. Mikenorton (talk) 12:42, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

Etymology Again[edit]

A. W. Stelfox and J. Sullivan, Inishtrahull, Co. Donegal: A Preliminary Survey, The Irish Naturalists' Journal, Vol. 7, No. 9 (Mar., 1940), pp. 238-243, Irish Naturalists' Journal Ltd. Stable URL: http://www.jstor.org/stable/25532980

According to this, the islanders themselves understood the name to mean Island of the Strands and Hollows, because no matter the direction from which the island was approached, one sees a strand or strands and intervening hollows. - Eroica (talk) 17:12, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
