Title:Seonag Smith (3)
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 third part, Seonag talks about her pastimes, such as reading, and her regular appearances on Gaelic radio and TV (and the prizes she’s won) and reflects on current Gaelic employment opportunities. She also recalls her parent’s stories of older feasting traditions attendant on weddings and sales days. Acknowledging the facilities now available at the 6-year school, and through online services, she regrets the lack of job opportunities for young people. Returning to cooking, the conversation ends with a discussion of traditional seafoods.
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.
