Title - Thusa Sheumais Ailein
Contributors - Katherine Dix
Reporters - Ian Paterson
Item Person - Seumas Ailean

Summary - Verses about a man called Seumas Ailean with a response to the man who made them.

The contributor says that "Fionnlaigh Cìobair who lived in Grenitote" made these verses about a man called Seumas Ailean. The verses lampoon the man, telling of how he would go from door to door with a hump on his back amongst other things. Seumas then responds to Fionnlagh with a very scathing satirical verse of his own.
