Solas na mara means light of the sea. Got to watch these gaelic names if you don't speak the lingo- heard a story about a posh yacht a few years ago called pog ma ton- kiss my ar*e... the fellow was given the inspiration for the name by some old west coaster who told him it meant sun and wind! Probably nonsense but funny all the same!
