Cuilionn Obit: Gaelic Singer Ishbel MacAskill (31 Mar 2011) (17) RE: Obit: Gaelic Singer Ishbel MacAskill (31 Mar 2011) 31 Mar 11


Ishbel:

Gach naomh ann am flathas                Be each saint in heaven,
Gach ban-naomh ann am flathas,               Each sainted woman in heaven
Gach aingeal am flathas                        Each angel in heaven
Bhith sgaoileadh dhuibh lamhan,               Stretching their arms for you,
Bhith réiteach dhuibh rathaid,                Smoothing the way for you,
Nuair théid sibh null thairis                When you go thither
        Air abhainn do-léirsinn;        Over the river hard to see;
O'nuair théid sibh null dhachaidh        O when you go thither homeward
        Air abhainn do-léirsinn;        Over the river hard to see.

(Gaelic death blessing, taken from the Carmina Gadelica)

Blessings to Ishbel's kith & kin in their grief.
