That is because the colour terms in Gaelic don't match the English ones 1 to 1, and gorm can be translated as "blue" or "green" depending on the context. However, as far as I know the meaning "green" is restricted to green as found in nature (e.g. cho gorm ris an fheur "as green as grass"), and is not used to describe a green table.
