Cruinneachadh Iomlan Luthmhor (An)
CRUINNEACHADH IOMLAN LUTHMHOR, AN. AKA and see "The General Gathering, 1745." At the battle of Quebec, 1760, the British troops were retreating before the French in disorder and the general complained to a field-officer in Fraser's regiment of the bad conduct of his corps. O'Neill (1913) reports the officer rejoindered, "Sir, you did very wrong in forbidding the pipers to play; nothing dispirits the Highlanders so much; even now they would be of some use." "Let them blow, in God's name, then!" said the general; and the pipers forming skirlled "Cruinneachadh" (Gathering), on which the Scots formed in the rear and bravely returned the charge.
