“taig” (correct spelling: “Teague) is derived from the Irish word “Tadhg”, which, according to different sources means either: “Irish”, “badger” or “bad poet”. As a surname it is now Teague. Teague and Tadh became a synonym for man: “Tadhg an dá thaobh” (Man of the street). At a later point, it became a reference to Catholics. The word/name Tague is commonly confused with the derogatory word/name Taig or Teague.
