footnotesHe and she: The Gaelic game title Cò i, cò e? translates as Who is he, who is she? The Gaelic for e is he or him, while i means her or she. Both e and i are usually written in lower case. Their plural form is iad - (they). The word co-ogha - cousin, literally translates as "co-grandchild" as ogha is the Gaelic for grandchild.
