Isn't cruinne also used in the sense of 'world'? I hear people on raidió na gaeltachta use the phrase 'ar fud na cruinne' quite a lot.
Yes. It can be used to mean something like "globe", or "world" in that sense.
Somewhat related to An chruinne: Bealach an Bó finne. The way of the white cow meaning The milky way. Not sure if in this course, but thought I would share:)
Enya's song "Rí Na Cruinne" King Of The World. (Maybe Clannad)
I answered with 'the universe' yet it was marked incorrect
