Notes on Gaelic Titles
Càit’ an-diugh thàinig tu? Caid’n Dudh thanic Dhu Dj. Where did you come today? This seems obscure but it is presumably incomplete, being only one line of a song, and perhaps also subject to poetic manipulation.
Fàilte Uilleim Dhuibh Mhic Coinnich Failte Uilleam Dhuibh Mhic Coinich / The Earl of Seaforth’s Salute KB; Failte Mac Kenich SC. Conventionally ‘The Earl of Seaforth’s Salute’. A lengthy set of words including Slàn gun till fear chinn duibh… Slàn gun till Uillichan… is printed under the music in KB, and similar texts, perhaps modelled on these, are in A. MacGregor, ‘Piobaireachd agus Cèol nan Gàidheal.’ Trans. Gaelic Soc. Inverness, II, (1872–3), p. 20, and ‘Fionn’, The martial music of the clans, Glasgow (1904), p. 24.
