Oh dear. Somebody will have to break the news to whoever harvested Trelawney that there is no such thing as Cornish Gaelic. Cornish is a Brythonic, not Goidelic, language,and is closely related to Welsh and Breton. The Cornish text in the DT is uncredited; it is a 20th century translation into that language from the original English, and was made by "Talek" (real name Ernest George Retallack Hooper), 3rd. Grand Bard of the Cornish Gorsedd (1959-1965).
