Notes on Gaelic Titles

Faicheachd Chlann Dòmhnaill Faicheachd Chlann Domhnuill / Parading of the MacDonalds K2; Faicheach Chlann Domhnuill JK. The Parading of the MacDonalds. The word faicheachd is not known as a musical genre term (akin to ‘march’ or ‘gathering’ ) but perhaps it was a recognised military term, as Dwelly lists faiche as ‘field’ and specifically ‘field where soldiers are reviewed’.

Fàilte Mhic Dhòmhnaill nan Eilean Failte MhicDhomhnuill no’n Elean / MacDonald of the Isles’ Salute D2. MacDonald of the Isles’ Salute.
