“It was nce modestly hailed in Gaelic from the ramparts of Kishmuil Castle.

“Now that the great MacNeil of Barra has dined, the Princes of the Earth may sit down to eat.’

“For Iain Roderick, the 46th Chief of MacNeil, it could be said, ‘One of the greatest MacNeils has taught law; the President of the United States may sit down to legislate.”
