I'm making a CD of uilleann tunes. There are to be two tracks, one entitled "It" and the other "The One That Follows It." I'd like to title them as Gaeilge.

Assuming that "It" is a "tune," and is therefore masculine, the first would be "É," would the second be "An t-Aon a Leanann É"?

Lucas? Relative clause... ;o)

é

an ceann a leanann é

Though I think it's commonplace to use "leanas" or something like that here.

An chéad cheann eile = the next one.

I suggest
Ceann rather than "é" and then
"an cheann ina dhiadh"

Ceann is a masculine noun, so no lenition:

"An ceann ina dhiaidh"

The joke doesn't work in translation, there is no repetition of "It".

Which is why I suggested "ceann" instead of "é"

My wits must be slightly addled.

To get the repetition in Irish, how about:

Ceann (one = it)
Ceann ar Cheann (one after one)

or

Fonn (a tune)
Fonn ar fhonn



BTW, I know ar translates literally as "on", just trust me on the meaning I gave!
