For Naemanson's mom:

A tune starting with "Planxty" is generally in honor of someone, so while I don't recognize "Safaigh" as a person's name, it probably is one.

As for "Ca' the Yowes," if you will go to this page, you will find the complete lyrics with the harder words "clickable" for translation into modern, American English. Since none of the words in the first line seem to be considered "hard," here's a start: Ca' is call, yowes is ewes, and knowes are, I believe, hills. Lovely song!

Cheers,
Claire
