    A further limitation is the fact that it includes only surnames having five or more birth entries thus excluding some of the rarer Irish family names. And as early as not only the anglicisation but also the fragmentation of Irish surname forms was well on its way. Ireland, the Highlands of Scotland and Wales derive their surnames from Gaelic personal names and would use the patronymic system at times, even still the cultural difference between the Scots of the Lowland and the Scots of the Highlands could be seen in the way surnames were passed on. Complex linguistic terrains and interfaces and competing terrains of discourse must also be traversed and addressed.

    However it is also relevant to note the large transitional zone in the middle of the county where Gaelic and Norman cultural forms met and fused to a greater extent. Dublin, while very similar to Tipperary, does reveal subtle regional differences as well. This latter region is seen to extend over much of lowland Leinster, presents a sharp frontier to the Gaelic world of Ulster and its borderlands in Leinster and Connaught, extends into Normanised Roscommon and swings south to reveal the cultural zones of high assimilation to medieval naming patterns amongst the Gaelic families of both East and North Cork and North Kerry. Yet a brief survey of the Fiants of the second half of the sixteenth century shows that both Gaelic Christian names and surnames were still rendered in their older forms. The system can be particularly useful for distinguishing individuals who live in the same locale and who share a common surname but are not closely related. There are, however, other cases which cannot apparently be accounted for in this way.

    Philip Robinson has made a major contribution here with his impressive maps of Scottish and English settlement zones based, amongst other criteria, on surnames analysis.

However it is also relevant to note the large transitional zone in the middle of the county where Gaelic and Norman cultural forms met and fused to a greater extent.
