Title:Seonag Smith (2)
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 second part, Seonag talks about the social scene in Benbecula when she was young, and how she met her husband. She also talks about her work on St Kilda, and her impressions of that island. Army life took them to Germany, and she mentions how she felt knowing Gaelic helped her learn German. This was followed by spells in Catterick, and London, where she had the chance to observe a different world at close hand. Eventually they returned to Benbecula to a newly built house.
Language notes:A two-way conversation in which Archie Campbell questions Seonag Smith on her recollections and opinions on growing up on Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides and wherever else her life took her.
