Note
Attested in the Middle Irish period. Further etymology uncertain: EDIL states that OIr. admad is the verbal noun of *ad-moin (meaning?). Alternatively, CDB refers to a connection with MIr. maide m. 'post, stick, bundle, wood' < PCelt. *mazdyo- ‘stick’ < PIE. *masdo- (RM), cognate with Lat. mālus, OIc. mastr 'mast'; and also OIr. mátán m. 'club', "which could be from *māzd-ān-o-" (RM). All these Celtic-Italic-Germanic words were "probably borrowed from some pre-IE source" (RM).
