Notes on Gaelic Title

Tha Clann Dòmhnaill Socharach Clandonniel Sochaach C2;Tha Clann Domhnuill Socharach / The MacDonalds are simple K3; Tha Clann Domhnuill Socharach / The MacDonald’s are Simple KK; tha chlan Dhonal Socharech JK. The MacDonalds are Steadfast. Conventionally ‘The MacDonalds are Simple’ but it is possible that ‘firm/steady/steadfast’ would be better translations, amending socharach to socrach and allowing for pre-aspiration in the latter.
