Subject: RE: Irish speakers' help, please
Felipa and Emily (and others who may come across this), there are 2 songs in Scottish Gaelic that sound to my ears just like Callin o custure me. They are in recordings of 1946 and 1951 respectively and are 2 different songs (or at least 2 different tunes - my ears aren't attuned enough to the language to hear any similarity or difference in the words). I don't know how similar or different Irish and Scottish Gaelic are, but is it possible you could translate the meaning of the following, please?
