Im­merse your­self in Dal­ri­ada Gaelic

Argyllshire Advertiser - - Leisure -

THE SOUND of our na­tive Ar­gyll tongue will be heard once again.

The small team at Dal­ri­ada Gaelic has been work­ing to col­lect ev­i­dence for the di­alect of Bute, Cowal and Mid-Ar­gyll over the past seven years in or­der to re­vive it as a spo­ken tongue.

Now it is time to hear the lo­cal di­alect used in the com­mu­nity again as it was for many cen­turies lead­ing up to the Sec­ond World War as a week­end-long im­mer­sion course is held at Auchindrain Mu­seum.

The course, dis­counted for Ar­gyll and Bute res­i­dents, will be held on Oc­to­ber 14 and 15, with lunch in­cluded in the price. Also in­cluded will be a fire-cooked din­ner and ceilidh house at­mo­sphere within the town­ship on the Satur­day night.

So bring your in­stru­ments and singing voices to Auchindrain and learn sim­ple con­ver­sa­tion, how to talk about flora and fauna, how to kin­dle a fire and more – all in the lo­cal di­alect – at the very first Dal­ri­ada Gaelic im­mer­sion week­end.

Con­tact Àd­hamh for more in­for­ma­tion on gaelic@dal­ri­ada.scot or call 07954 620 165.
