I have a 'Feadog' irish whistle but have been trying to find out what the word 'Feadog' means. Is it irish for whistle? Any ideas folks....

Feadóg = fife, flute, whistle or plover (bird)
A Feadóg stáin is a tin whistle.

Around these parts anyway I hear it pronounced fya-DOG, with a long O so it rhymes with "vogue" and "brogue".

Jim - am I right in thinking that "stáin" would rhyme with "Táin" and other similarly-spelled words, i.e. be pronounced as stoyne?

As far as I know Bonnie (as a non-Irish speaker).

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.

"Feadóg" also means "plover" - which is a cause of confusion in some Irish placenames e.g. Dog's Bay, in Connemara!

Doesn't 'ogue' mean 'young', or is that 'og' ??

"óg" on its own does mean "young", but it doesn't seem to form part of the word "feadóg". I've never seen it spelled any other way (open to correction on this) though it's sometimes altered according to grammatical usage, e.g. Tír na nÓg" (land of youth).

Leamh is an Irish word that is difficult to translate directly...it means bland, tasteless, lifeless,,,more or less.

-óg is a suffix often meaning young but also meaning small, so that faológ - a northern word for seagull - means a small wolf, for instance.

Whilst this thread has popped up again, can anyone help with the pronunciation (please)of the reel 'Sean Sa Ceo'. I believe it translates something like 'John in the fog'?

Séan= Shawn
Sa=Su (as in suck)
Ceo=Kyo

And yes, it means Séan in the Fog.

BTW Sean (without the accent) is pronounced to rhyme with "sham" & it translates as "old"

The accent should be on the a, Seán, not Séan! Sorry!
