"ag crinneadh boirdíní fóidín baic as creigeacha agus as leacacha Sheana Choille." Cad is brí do "crinneadh" agus "boirdíní fóidín baic"?

Cruinniú

Just a wild guess, a variant on the Caighdeán.

crinneadh - contend closely with OR gnaw

boirdíní - probably "small tables"
fóidín - small sods
baic - not sure! "bac " is a hindrance, baic is the nape of the neck, but neither seems to make sense in the context

Cá bhfuil tú ag fáil an stuif seo? Más ón Cadhnach é, tá cáil air as bheith ag úsáid leaganacha neamhcoitianta.

I'd go with something like

"gathering small amounts of (some kind of) sod from the crags and rocks of Seana Coille"

As to where it's found, sounds like "literature" to me... :-)

Go raibh maith agaibh. Muise, is ón Cadhnach atá mé ag fáil é seo. Is an léamh molta ar chúla an leabhair "Learning Irish" le Mícheál Ó Siadhail.
