2019 an t-Sultain: A’ bruidhinn mu dhaoine / Sep. Talking about people

A’ bruidhinn mu dhaoine / Talking about people I’ve amassed a huge number of words describing people, or used to address people. Many of them came up again and again, from sources old and young, including ones I collected over the years from those no longer with us. That shows that the words and expressions […] Continue reading

2019 an t-Iuchar: Ainmean-iasg / July: Seaboard fish names

Seaboard fish First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who has given me their Seaboard words and phrases since my appeal last month. The response has been amazing, especially at the Fisherfolk Festival dinner, and while I was on duty in the Fishing Store.  There are far too many names to mention everyone, […] Continue reading

2019 an Cèitean: Fritilean Ceann-nathrach / May: Snake’s Head Fritillary

Fritilean Ceann-nathrach / Snake’s head fritillary Bha e riamh na iongnadh dhomh mar a chruthaicheas nàdar lus ball-breacte mar chlàr-tàileisg – chan eil mi eòlach air fear sam bith ach an fhritilean cheann-nathrach. Chunnaic mi a’ chiad uair e ann an dath-uisge le Charles Rennie Mackinosh https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/264445809339397836/ , agus is esan aon de na lusan […] Continue reading

2019 an Giblean: Uiseag Bheag Dhearg / Apr. Little Red Lark

Uiseag bheag dhearg – Little red lark Seo òran-tàlaidh beag brèagha, a thàinig à Eilean Mhanainn bho thùs. Chaidh eadar-theangachadh bho Ghàidhlig Mhanainneach gu Gàidhlig na h-Alba o chionn mu cheud bliadhna, agus cha b’ fhada gus an do dh’fhàs e gu math measail air feadh nan dùthchannan Ceilteach. Anns an t-sèist chì thu “san […] Continue reading

2019 am Màrt: Teampaill Angkor / Mar. Angkor Temples

Teampaill Angkor Chambodia Bha mi cho fortanach ‘s gun robh cothrom agam saor-làithean a chur seachad ann an Àisia an Ear-dheas san Fhaoilleach. Tha mo bhràthair a’ fuireach ann an Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, agus ‘s ann an sin a bha mi pàirt den ùine, ach shiùbhail mi a Chambodia cuideachd, a dh’aona-ghnothach gus na teampaill […] Continue reading

2018 An Dùbhlachd: Aran Mhuileagan / Dec. Fresh Cranberry Loaf

Aran Mhuileagan Seo reasabaidh Ameireaganach a fhuair mi bho charaid dhomh, Cam NicRàth. Tha am milsean blasta furasta seo air a bhith air bùird latha-fèille nan Crathach bho chionn còrr is leth-cheud bliadhna.  Sùghmhor ’s mar a tha e, dh’fhaodadh cèic a bhith air seach aran – tha e cho blasta le ìm no as […] Continue reading

2018 An t-Sultain: Am Foghar / Nov. Autumn

Am Foghar Nuair a tha mi a’ sgrìobhadh seo, ‘s e deireadh na Dàmhair a th’ ann, na craobhan dearg is òir is na duilleagan a’ tuiteam.  Tha mi dìreach air ais bhon Mhòd ann an Dùn Òmhain, agus air an t-slìghe dhràibh sinn tro choilltean brèagha ri taobh lochan fada ciùin Earra-Ghàidheal.  Bha mullaichean […] Continue reading

2018 an Dàmhair / Oct.: Liverpool

Liverpool agus na Saighdearan Terracotta Dà sheachdain air ais bha mi ann an Liverpool gus coinneachadh ri caraidean, ach cuideachd gus taisbeanadh sònraichte san World Museum fhaicinn, a‘ sealladh cuid de na Saighdearean Terracotta à Sìona. Tha sin air mìos eile fhathast, gus 28mh den Dàmhair, agus ‘s math as fhiach fhaicinn. Ach feumaidh sibh […] Continue reading

2018 an t-Sultain: Tìr an Eòrna / Sep.: Barley Country

Tìr an Eòrna – Barley Country ‘S ann air Tiriodh a tha an t-ainm Tìr an Eòrna anns na seann òrain– bha an t-eilean aithnichte airson arbhair, ach bhiodh seo ceart cho freagarrach mar ainm air Ros an Ear. Nuair a bhios tu a’ dràibheadh tro Mhachair Rois no tron Eilean Dubh as t-samhradh, chì […] Continue reading
