    Thank you very much for your reply. I received another answer that
it is indeed Irish.  This message spawns from a discussion about
derbfine vs. tanisty and how these factors played an influence when the
House of Balloil and the House of Bruce vied for the throne of Scotland.
I wondered if the words that I'd posted were 'proper' terminology for
the Scottish lowands for the late 1200's.  Again, thank you sincerely
for your assistance.
