Default sheepdog commands in Irish or Scots Gaelic?

Could someone tell me some main sheepdog commands in Irish or Scots
Gaelic?

I.e. what in English are "Away to Me", "Come Bye", etc.

Cheers!

John

'Come Bye' means "walk to my left"

'Away' means, would you believe, "walk to my right".

I don't know any others :-(

I know what they mean - I was asking for what the commands are in
Irish or Scots Gaelic! :-)

"Come Bye" also has the meaning of "move around the sheep clockwise",
with "Away" or "Away to Me" meaning "move around the sheep counter-
clockwise". Clever animals, those border collies!

Other commands in English a

"Stand" - stand still
"That'll Do" - return to handler
"Walk Up" - move straight towards sheep
"Get Back" or "Get Out" - keep or move further out to give the sheep
more room
"Lie Down" - self-explanatory, but can also mean slow down
"Look Back" - stop current working and turn around to look for more
sheep
"Take Time" - slow down

But I would love to know them in the Gaelic...

We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
drugs began to take hold. I remember John Nagelson
saying something like:

Gaelic?

I.e. what in English are


"Away to Me",


"Gerightyefeckerye"

"Come Bye", etc.


"Gerovatheleftfeckerye"

Use GOOGLE or any other search page and then a TRANSLATOR.
The dog will probably ignore you anyway, most clever ones will know what to
do with sheep.
Do you know any sheep dogs that understand Gaelic?

My brother-in-law's father bought a dog a few years ago, perfect
breeding, but it wouldn't work, so he took it back to the trainer, who
told him the dog spoke Irish. Sure enough, once given commands As
Gaeilge, the dog performed as you'd expect from his pedigree.


I once knew a cat that spoke Welsh, and wouldn't respond to English.

My ex wife is from Slovakia and on one trip to Slovakia she spoke to her
Mum's dog in English and wondered why it would not sit. She had no idea what
she had done.

I also know a Welshman that speaks English perfectly well and will not
respond to English.

I used to do servicing work at the Trawsfynydd Nuclear Power Station.

My English colleagues used to say that the barmaids at the local pub
always switched to talking in Welsh as soon as they entered. I noticed
that as well.

However, I had worked night shifts at a TV station when OU programmes
teaching the Welsh Language went out. It soon became clear to me that
they were discussing the fact that "someone" was pinching the toilet
rolls out of the "ladies", and it wasn't the Saesnegs {sassonachs}
that were the prime suspects, not the men at any rate.

Some of them are like that. A pat on the head and a biscuit might bring
them round.

When I used to work as a security steward at outdoor events like the
races and stuff, I worked at the Brecon Jazz Festival. We used to work
the night shift and used to go for a few jars before starting. Here are
a couple of gems we heard:

'Is this coat your jacket?'
'Are you reading that paper you're sat on?'

Ah Wales, where men are men and sheep are nervous!
