I can’t help with the Gaelic connection, but it reminds me of a scouting campfire song we used to do with the boys. For more information on that, go to:

My mother was a Miller from Kilmarnock, and my grandmother a Miller from Muckairn. I have done some research on them. So I have an odd quesion.
When I was a child, my mother sang a lullaby to me in Gaelic. I remember it began wih words that sounded like Hayla, Hayle, Shayla.
Yes later, I heard it on a recording, but lost it. The tune was he same, and the opening words sounded the same. It seems it was a highland work song for use as they soaked the wool, then pounded it dry on a table.
It there a possibility anyone in you circle would know something of this?
