A Deanadh Im

This is a tune I learned off Natalie MacMaster… pipe reel composed by Paul MacNeil from Cape Breton.

No repeats, by the way… just edited the ABC notation.

What does the name mean please?

I’m not sure if the names mean the same, but An Deanadh Im is on one of the Anna Massie album and I’m 100% positive it’s the same tune.

Translates as "Making Butter" apparently.

making butter for lining the bagpipe bag with presumably?
In any case, much elbow power required!

There’s a joke about wee Johnnie being asked by his teacher to translate ‘Butter’ in Irish:
-"um…" is all he can say
Well done, says the teacher!

(gaelic ‘im’ sounds a bit like ‘hum’…)
