Notes on Gaelic Title

Cumha Iarla Aontruim Cumha Iarla Aintrum / The Earl of Antrums Lamt K1; Cumha Iarla Aintrim / The Earl of Antrum’s Lament KK. Lament for the Earl of Antrim. Angus MacKay’s English spelling with ‘u’ is typical of his rendering of words spelled with ‘i’ in later conventional English, e.g. ‘Mudden’ in Gogallach nan Cearc, and ‘Mac Crummon’ generally.
