Literal translation

by Michael McKay

Basically I just saw where he asked for a translation and I just gave him a literal one based on what I thought the words meant.

'Deoch (drink) slainte (health) nam (of the) ban righ (queen), deoch (drink) slainte (health) na Gael (Highlander)'

Gael is the term Highlanders referred to themselves in the native tongue like 'Deutsch' means German people.

Not sure where all the drama is coming from.
