Subject: Dinny the Piper
From: Clinton Hammond2

Actually I'm just looking for 1 line....

'Ah bad luck to that beast, she'd no musical taste to eat such a jolly old chanter
???( A fadra ga vick ) ???, take a lump of a stick, driver her off down the road and we'll canter'

Anyone got a clue???

"A phád raig a mhic," according to this blicky. I think the "mhic" is pronounced more like "vhick," but Aine'd be the one to ask about meaning and pronunciation.

Dunno, Clinton. I've used my "phone-a-friend" lifeline for it, and PM'ed Aine.

So, how long does a spell of Aine-summoning take to take effect?

It Means "Patrick my son" Paudraig pronounced paw-rick is a gaelic form of Patrick. a mhic means "my son" but not necessarily in the literal sense more as a term of friendlyness to any male. Ferg

Maith thú, a Fhergie! Sin direach é.

And MMario, it means 'Patrick, my son' and not 'Paddy my boy' . . . unless you want to sound silly. ;-)

And Chris -- Sorry I didn't get the PM sooner, or I would have hopped on my broomstick immediately!

Slán, Áine

Áine - I meant that it was being used in a non-literal sense; as there are some people who call all younger males sonny, or those who call all young women "sweetie" or for that matter some women who call everybody "honey" --so instead of just plain "Patrick" it was a more affectionate but not literal term

okay - I just read the lyrics more carefully; it is father and son...
