Thread Name: Gaelic/Irish: the word fulachtadh
Subject: RE: Gaelic/Irish: the word fulachtadh
I wonder if the word's related to fulacht fia, a method of cooking using dug-out and lined pits filled with water; you slung in red-hot boulders heated in a nearby fire, then your meat mummified tightly in grass and herbs. Fia is a deer, by the way.
