Ciad Mile Failte
(One hundred thousand welcomes)
"One hundred thousand welcomes"
is a traditional Gaelic greeting extended by Nova Scotians to all who cross our border. The Gaelic language, while all but lost to many parts of the Celtic world, has remained vital in certain Cape Breton communities to this day.
The spelling here is taken from the Scottish, that being the homeland of the majority of early settlers to our area.
FYI - and do correct me if I am wrong - the Irish equivalent is "Cead Mile Failte."
The next kit - a small Thistle design - is a companion piece. The photos were taken in different light using different film, but the floss colours are actually the same.
