Còinneach

7th July

From the land, comes the cloth, comes the language…

Còinneach (/kɤNʲəx/)
“Moss”

Given time and peace to grow in the stillness of the moor, in the clean, clear air. A cushion of brightest green, creating a welcome softness underfoot.

Our Gaelic Moorland Word of the Week comes from Rathad an Isein, The Bird’s Road: a Lewis Moorland Glossary, a compilation by Anne Campbell.
