Focal an Lae #95
The Word of the Day in Irish

Word: leor (LYOHR) [l′oːr]

Meaning: leor = sufficient, ample

Usage:

History: Old Irish “lour” and Welsh “llawer” (many, much) come from Common Celtic *ləweros, from the Indo-European root *lau- (gain, profit). Latin “lucrum” (profit) gives us the English cognate “lucrative”.

Scottish Gaelic: leòr
