Really quick questions;

An Mhor Rioghain is also identified as "the Washer at the Ford." Is this Ford a specific place? Does it correlate to a map-able place in physical Ireland?

(Or, in leiu of answering, feel free to provide me with links. If it's discussed in the Epstein thesis, let me know as well; I have downloaded that resource, but have had trouble "getting into" its necessarily scholarly presentation :/)

Thanks much.

The ford isn't specific. It's a generic reference to a shallow place in a stream or river, thus useful for doing laundry.

Fords in that sense are usually shallow, and often narrower sections of a river or stream that is crossable (is that a term?). If you look at stories or writing from older ages, 'fording a creek/river/stream' is a common term.
