Notes on Gaelic Titles

Blàr Ghleann Seile Blàr Ghleann Sheille / The Battle of Glen-Sheil K2; Blar Ghleann Sheille / The Battle of Glensheill KK; Glen Sheil Beg JK; Glen Shelle Beag JKA; Battle of Glenshell SC. The Battle of Glensheil. It is not clear whether John MacKay’s addition of beag refers to the glen or to the tune (the latter implying that there was or had been another longer tune on the same theme).
