Title:Catrìona Nic an t-Saoir (1)
Short url:
Summary:Part of the Stòras Beò nan Gàidheal project in which the UHI Language Sciences Institute with Sabhal Mòr Ostaig and Soillse, together with Irish partners, record the natural speech of Irish and Scottish Gaelic speakers in their own communities with user-friendly equipment and techniques. Here, in the first part, Catrìona, from Iochdar in South Uist, recalls happy schooldays, first in Iochdar, then Daliburgh, and finishing in Fort William on the mainland. Having decided on a teaching career she trained in Glasgow, before returning to South Uist for her first job, in Lochboisdale, where she used her Gaelic quite a lot. On marrying she moved back to Fort William where she worked in a school for twenty years, while remarking on the close island and Gaelic connections of many in the town and the school.
Language notes:A two-way conversation in which Archie Campbell questions Catriona MacIntyre on her recollections and opinions on growing up on South Uist in the Outer Hebrides and wherever else her life took her.
