Ceistean

Thank you for all the assistance. Tha ceistean eile agam (mu dhéidhinn Oidhche Shamhna): Would 'gealach-fhuil' be the correct tr*nsl*t**n for 'Blood Moon'? Is 'bhampair' really the only tr*nsl*t**n for vampire? Isn't there Gaelic lore relating to these creatures - BaoBhan Sìth, Droch-Fhola, Dreach-F...

Ceistean

I used the following as a caption to a photo I took on the weekend, but I'm still not sure I got it right: "Éirigh na gréine os coin a' chnoic an-diugh."
