Degol strictly speaking introduces an adverbial form. Degol Peran should mean 'on St Piran's day', though the distinction has been lost.

Degol is well attested (albeit not with Peran).

han tresse mys gvyngala dugol myhal yv henna BM 2067-68
dugol myhall byth henna BM 2201
Epiphania…C. Degl stûl AB: 57a.

There is, by the way, no warrant for the apostrophe in dy'. The form never contained
dydh and in consequence *dy'gool, KK *dy'goel are solecisms.
