Ceist Mhòr an Fhearainn

Bho chionn bheagan mhìosan a-nis, tha mi air a bhith ag obair air rannsachadh airson sreath do dh’obraichean ealain ùra. Tha riamh ùidh air a bhith agam anns a’ cheangal a th’ againn ris an àrainneachd agus ris an t-saoghal – gu h-àraid a’ coimhead air cho dlùth ’s a tha a’ bheatha ris an […] Continue reading

Chaidh èiginn na gnàth-shìde a ghairm le Nicola Sturgeon nas tràithe dhen bhliadhna, ach dè tha sin a’ ciallachadh do dh’Uibhist a Deas, fear de na prìomh àiteachan a tha fo chunnart ri linn atharrachadh na gnàth-shìde?

Bidh clann Sgoil Dhalabroig am measg na h-òigridh a bhios a’ togail fianais air feadh an t-saoghail mu atharrachadh na gnàth-shìde air 15 den Mhàrt.

Not Spoken Here

After David Mundell’s attempts to re-brand Scotland out of the Scottish Office, we speculated about what a further de-Scottishification process might look like – “Welcome to the Beautiful Beautiful Banks of Lake Lomond” – “Go in search of the Lake Ness Monster” – “read about the Massacre of the Valley of Coe” etc. Thankfully Andy […] Continue reading

The Power of the Colonised Mind

I started to write this article in Gaelic, with a view to bolstering Bella’s already excellent corpus of Gaelic-language articles, but I realised that in doing so, I would be shutting off the very people who need to read it from its key messages.
