Notes on Gaelic Titles
A’ Bhirlinn Chorrach Chaol Vuirlin Corrich Chaoil C2. The slender galley. The adjectives could be compliments to the vessel – narrow and unstable, but fast and elegant.
Cha b’oil le Mac-a-Phì fhéin … a sheinn Cha bol le mhac a fee he a nee a chen JK. Not yet completely interpreted, but it evidently begins something like ‘MacPhee would not mind (object to)…’ and perhaps ends ‘to sing/play it’.
Ruaig air Chlann-a-Phì Ruaig air Clann a Phie / The Rout of the MacPhies K3. The Rout of the MacPhees.
