As per L. T. May's question, I can't remember the origin of "taig," but my dad
knows it and I'll find out from him soon. As for the Catholic side of a shovel,
it has to do with shovel handles I think I remember. The poorer Catholics, using
shovels without handles, would shove a shovel into the ground with a grip and a
shove from the right side...whereas porported wealthier Protestants had shovels
with handles, and would use the left.  I think that's it...I'll dig up some more
later (yuk yuk).
