Eideird 's a h-uile duine,

Tha mi 'gam faicinn uileadh, agus 's e mo bheachd gum bi sibh a' deanamh cho
math 's bu chir dhomh bhi smhach!
Am I at-their seeing all, and is it my opinion that will-be you doing so good
that is proper for-me to-be quiet!
I'm seeing them all, and it is my opinion that you're doing so well, I should
be quiet!

( "Uileadh" is an old form of "uile" and is used when "uile" comes after the
word it modifies. e.g.
a h-uile duine -- na daoine uileadh . I don't know how much it is used in
"modern" Gaelic.)

Le meas,
Aonghas
