Thread Name: Gaelic/Irish: the word fulachtadh
Subject: RE: Gaelic/Irish: the word fulachtadh
Dineen, the standard early 20C. dictionary of Irish gives "seething" as the sole meaning for "fulachtadh" and relates it to "fulacht", with a number of cooking-related senses.
The next word in Dineen is "fulachtain" meaning "tolerant, long-suffering".
So Mumford Jones appears to be on the money, alright.
