RATH.—This term applies to the mound on which a royal residence or that of a chief was situated. Thus we have Rath-na-Riogh, Rath Grainae, Rath Laghaire, all seats of royalty; also Rath of Doon Patrick, another royal residence; Naas Rath, seat of Kings of Leinster.
Dr. Joyce states that 1,100 townlands commence their names with the prefix rath or ra.

From a sad, comfortless childhood Giles Truelove developed into a reclusive and uncommunicative man whose sole passion was books. For so long they were the only meaning to his existence. But when fate eventually intervened to have the outside world intrude upon his life, he began to discover emotions that he never knew he had.
This is a story for the genuine booklover, penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St. John Featherstonehaugh.
