20 JUL Ceili or ceilidh? A scottish ceili in the Culloden Ceili or ceilidh? It doesn’t matter! ‘Ceilidh’ is a much older spelling of ‘ceili’ and is more in use in Scotland. We can provide you with a Scottish or Irish ceili / ceilidh, or a mixture of both. Post Author: Loreto McAuley Owner/manager of the McAuley Ceili Band. Also play keys!
