Saying beginning 'Aona godhar deug ghiorlagach ghearlagach ghoirleagach', 1894

Identifier: Coll-97/CW1/54

Scope and Contents

Saying written down by John Ewen MacRury, Beinn na Faoghla/Benbecula beginning 'Aona godhar deug ghiorlagach ghearlagach ghoirleagach'. The saying appears to be a tongue-twister involving animals and people. The text has been scored through in pencil and it looks as if Alexander Carmichael has altered the 'chalmana' to 'chalamana'.
