Gaelic Society of Inverness visit



Members of the Comann Eachdriadh Lios Mor gathered at Ionad Naomh Moluag recently to welcome 45 members of the Gaelic Society of Inverness. As well as meeting old friends, the visitors looked around the Museum and Taigh Iseabal Dhaid and lunched at the café. Later Archie MacColl drove them around the island in the community bus.


 Thanks to the wonderful weather, piper Davie Garret and his teenage musicians - Colin Black (guitar), Joe Derham (fiddle) and Murray Willis (accordion) -  were able to add to the carnival atmosphere and play outside. The Gaelic Society of Inverness  is the second oldest in Britain the London Gaelic Society(1777)  being the oldest in existence.


 Inverness was established in 1871 for the specific purpose of “cultivating the language, poetry and music of the Scottish Highlands and generally furthering the interests of the Gaelic speaking people”. This was their first visit to Lismore as a group but hopefully not their last.
