Default Gaelic translation?

This may not be the best place to ask this question, but I'm not sure where to post it so ...

I am composing a slow air in honor of someone close to me who was killed in a kayaking accident earlier this year. I am calling the tune "Lost River". There is a close Scottish connection in the family and I want to use the Gaelic translation. The best I've found is "Abhainn Caillit". Am I close? What is the pronunciation?
"... and the people piped with pipes, and rejoiced with great joy, so that the earth was rent with the sound of them."

I'm sure you've found the best place to post worries. Please let me know if you don't get your answer. I might be able to help. *I don't speak Gaelic....just have friends and relatives that might be able to help.
You can't tell me what to do...that's the little voice's job...
