Gaelic Weekend



Thirteen students from Edinburgh and their teacher Anne Paterson travelled to Lismore to be tutored in Gaelic and to spend the weekend on an island where the Gaelic culture is active.
On the Saturday morning they were tutored by Margaret MacDonald and Paddy MacNicol and in the afternoon given a tour in the community bus driven by Ian MacKinnon with Donald Black as their guide.

A ceilidh dance in the public hall rounded off the day chaired by Duncan Livingstone with songs from eight-year-old singer Sophie King, and adults Gregor Lawrie and Duncan Livingstone. The studentsí choir also sang with some solos from the visitors. The band for the evening was the very accomplished Cast Ewe Ceilidh Band who are always very well received.  Tea coffee and home baking was served.


The Committee of Comann Eachdraidh Lios MÚr are very grateful to Gaelic teacher Anne Paterson who has been bringing her students to Lismore for several years. A vote of thanks to all who organised and participated in a very successful evening was proposed by John Livingstone.
