Could you tell me the correct translation for the mythical "storyteller". Is it 'seanachie"?? [spelling?]
Also, does the word "tullaun" translate as a "knoll"?
Thanx, Richard in Canada

Tulach = hill
There may be a form "Tulán" but I have never heard it.
another word for hill is cnoc and that has a diminutive "cnocán" so it may be the same for "tulach" but I can't confirm.
Seanachaí = Storyteller
