Gaelic term or phrase: Fynad Gaelica
I am not a native speaker of Gaelic, and although I claim no proficency in the language (I am an American Scots-Irish (I know this means Northern Irelander in American English but oddly enough my ancestors are Irish-people that lived in Alba (Scotland)I just want to know what the h*ll Fynad means. I can figure out ~Gaelic~a... Thank you

Fianna?
Explanation:
That Fyanad seems to me to be Fianna, which refers to the legendary warriors of Ireland, the Fianna, leader Cú Chulainn. A variation is Fenian, which was adopted by rebels in/around the 18th/19th century.

The present day political parties use variations on the same in their names: Fianna Fáil means the 'warriors' of Fáil and Fine Gael means the Clan of Gaels or something along those lines.

I see that yours is the only ref on google to your spelling, so i CAn't help more. But that's my hunch.

EXTRACT: Centuries later, the Fenian hero, Finn Mac Cumhaill, took advantage of this festival, where he would restore Clan Bascna place within the Fianna, without being arrested by his enemies.
