    Greetings !
    I see on D. McNeil’s marker a gaelic inscription that appears to read “Sith Dha Anam”. Any idea what it translates to in English?

  2. Magicfingers says:

    Yep, it’s Gaelic, as McNeil hailed from the Isle of Barra, off the western coast of Scotland. From what I can find, sith means peace, dhia, as opposed to dha (but it’s close…maybe an inscription error?) means God, and anam means soul. Unless anyone knows better?

    Sìth dha anam – Peace/rest to his soul

    Fois Dhè dha anam would be May God rest his soul.

    Well thank you Janice. Your translation is much appreciated.
