Hullo!

I'd be much obliged if anyone could help. I'm looking for a Gaelic lullaby that someone I knew used to sing. I'm fairly certain it was Scots Gaelic, though I suppose it could be Irish. I think it was listing birds names.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Ta!

There is certainly a well known (Irish) Gaelic lullaby called "Éiníní" - which literally means "Little Birds" - but it does not, to the best of my failing memory - involve listing names. I'll check.

Regards

In fact, it does list some names - and we looked at it a long time ago!

There is an album from the School of Scottish Studies which incudes tradititional lore and bird imitations by (if memory serves me) Calum and Annie Johnston.
It is No. 13 (I think) of their 'Scottish Traditions' series

Éiníní is the one I was looking for! Thank you so very much!
