Translation according to P. W. Joyce:
Lisheenanoran in Galway; of the uaran or cold spring. These lisses or homes were always built near a water supply. See Fuaran, vol. i. p. 453.
Uaran or fuaran is explained by Colgan, "a living fountain of fresh or cold water springing from the earth." It is not easy to say whether the initial f is radical or not; if it be, the word is obviously derived from fuar, cold; if not, it comes from ur, fresh; and Colgan's explanation leaves the question undecided. This word gives name to Oranmore in Galway, which the Four Masters call Uaran mór, great spring. Oran in Roscommon was once a place of great consequence, and is frequently mentioned in the annals; it contains the ruins of a church and round tower; and the original uaran or spring is a holy well, which to this day is much frequented by pilgrims. Oran occurs pretty often in names, such as Knockanoran (knock, a hill), in Queen's County and Cork; Ballinoran and Ballynoran (Bally, a town), the names of many townlands through the four provinces; Tinoran in Wicklow, Tigh-an-uarain, the house of the spring; Carrickanoran in Kilkenny and Monaghan (Carrick, a rock); and Lickoran, the name of a parish in Waterford, the flag-stone of the cold spring.
