Mr. Deasy's mantelpiece in Nestor boasts a picture of "the shapely bulk of a man in tartan filibegs: Albert Edward, prince of Wales." Filibeg transliterates the Scots Gaelic féileadhbeag, from the words féileadh (kilt) and beag (small). The Prince of Wales, who became King Edward VII in 1901 (though his coronation occurred in 1902), often dressed in such a get-up.
