as similar to the question around soitheach 'dish', my understanding is this refers to both the container and/or the meal. does this apply to broilleach, meaning the anatomy and a container for clothing and/or pirate booty?

There's something in the notes that specifies it's only referring to anatomy, if I remember correctly.
