|GUEST,Maurice||Feadog - meaning (19)||RE: Feadog - meaning||04 Jul 08|
The Feadog part means whistle, stain means tin. (Mostly they're not made of tin anymore but the name sticks).Hard to get the pronounciation into English, fadh-OGUE (with a hard G)( as vogue or brogue, as you say. The "fadh" rhymes with bad, more or less. STAW-in, staw rhymes with straw. The feadog brand are decent whistles for the price. And a "feadog mor" (pronounced moor) (mor means big) is a flute. "feadog isheal" (EE-shall) is a low whistle, an octave down from the usual.
