I thought it was Seamus?

That's how it would be written in Irish.

But this is a scottish gaelic course - so shouldn't it be Seamus?

Seumas > Scottish Gaelic

Seamus > Irish

I’m not sure I’m following. I wrote the sentence into the course and as you can see above it is spelt “Seumas”. This is the Scottish Gaelic spelling.

sorry - i mixed the two up - I thought Seamus was the Scottish spelling. My family is from Cape Breton and that's the only spelling i've ever seen

What does this mean?

If someone is cross is they are angry with something.

Your mum would be cross if you walked mud through the house.
