Gaelic language must be promoted
Sir, The recent letter from Aonghas Eoghainn Mhòir caught my eye.
I would agree to a large extent with him, but I would phrase my opinion this way. Some ‘academics’ – so called – are killing the Gaelic language. After all, Professor Donald Meek is an academic and is not to be blamed surely. I would call myself an academic (at least a late developer from the west coast of Scotland) but in all honesty “bha mise an còmhmuidh a bruidheann Gaìdhlig”.
I will be more specific than Aonghas. I blame top broadcasters (not those who read the news and give us weather news) but men and women long past their sell-by date who promote English songs, Country/ Western pop etc in the middle of Gaelic talking! How ridiculous is that? Get rid of those broadcasters who are not promoting the Gaelic language.
Le speis, Ailean Dòmhnullach.
