Tuireadh Iain Ruaidh  (Lament For Red Iain) A lament in which a woman is mourning the death of her beloved. She bemoans the fact that the sun no longer appears in the sky and that she is now without friendship, without love, and without protection. The melody is based on part of a pibroch believed to date from the mid-18th Century.   The Gaelic lyrics were added later by Scottish poet Edward Pursell (1891-1964). Pursell was born in Campbeltown in Argyll and was a primary school headmaster, an artist, author and Gaelic educationalist. The ‘red’ in the title refers to Iain’s red hair.
