Cov­er­age from the Pro­vin­cial Mod on Mull

The Oban Times - - Front Page -

COM­PETI­TORS from all over Scot­land made their way to Tober­mory for one of the finest pro­vin­cial mod com­pe­ti­tions in Gaelic song and mu­sic.

In­ver­ness, con­ducted by Ardgour singer, song­writer and broad­caster Mary Ann Kennedy, was hugely suc­cess­ful - but the praise on the day was for ev­ery­one who helped to make the event hap­pen.

Janet Mac­Don­ald, con­venor of the Mull mod com­mit­tee said: ‘I would like to thank all who con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of this year’s Mòd Ion­adach na Dreòl­luinn.

‘ We have a small, hard-work­ing com­mit­tee, who pull out all the stops each year to make sure that our Mòd is one of the most suc­cess­ful lo­cal mods in the coun­try.

‘In fact, I would go so far as to say the most suc­cess­ful Mòd in the coun­try!

‘ I would like to of­fer my sin­cere thanks to the com­mit­tee again this year, for the phe­nom­e­nal amount of work they have done prior to and dur­ing the two- day mod.

‘Thank you to the many, many com­peti­tors who come from far and near to take part, just a few short weeks be­fore the na­tional mod.

‘Many thanks also to our ad­ju­di­ca­tors, who had to make very dif­fi­cult de­ci­sions in many com­pe­ti­tions where the stan­dard of Gaelic and mu­sic was ex­tremely high.

‘The Mull mod is a real com­mu­nity event, since it all hap­pens on the Main Street in Tober­mory, right in the mid­dle of town, and I want par­tic­u­larly to thank all the mem­bers of the com­mu­nity who help in so many dif­fer­ent ways dur­ing the two days of the Mòd.

‘Most lo­cal busi­nesses are only too will­ing to take advertising space in our pro­gramme, spon­sor a com­pe­ti­tion, or pro­vide help in other ways.

‘ We are very for­tu­nate that many peo­ple come for­ward to of­fer their ser­vices, but we would welcome any­one else who feels they could be of as­sis­tance in fu­ture.

‘Mòran taing dhuibh uile! Seò­naid.’
