From cadair "chair" in a similar way to how "cathedral" is an adjective derived from "cathedra" (Latin for chair or seat) -- it was the church that had the seat of the bishop in it, so it's sort of the "seatly church".

Note that the dictionary form of this adjective in cadeiriol -- gadeiriol is with soft mutation such as you might see after the feminine noun eglwys.
