The animals and the family lived in the same house. The father died and many of the children. The mother had to go out gathering tangles and left the baby of the family, Gilleasbuig Lachainn, later known as ‘Baldy’, wrapped in a plaid below the head of the cow in the stall. When she got back the baby was quite warm - JMcC
