The Oban Times - - News -

MANY Mull folk were suc­cess­ful in the Royal Na­tional Mòd in Oban this year, and sev­eral tro­phies were brought home on the ferry.

Mull Gaelic Choir brought home five pieces of sil­ver­ware from the ru­ral choirs com­pe­ti­tions, scor­ing ex­tremely high marks in the com­pe­ti­tion.

They were de­lighted to win, for the sec­ond year run­ning, the ru­ral choirs’ Sher­iff MacMaster- Camp­bell Me­mo­rial Quaich, the Selma Shield for Gaelic and the Grace Robert­son Me­mo­rial Ba­ton for the high­est mu­sic marks.

They came sec­ond in the Puirt a Beul com­pe­ti­tion by only one mark and won the Calum Robert­son Tro­phy for the high­est marks in Gaelic in this com­pe­ti­tion.

The Mull choir also won a new tro­phy, the John Lockie Tro­phy, for high­est ag­gre­gate Gaelic marks over their three com­pe­ti­tions.

Carol MacLean from Tober­mory won the Sarah Weir Me­mo­rial Tro­phy in the Mull and Iona Song com­pe­ti­tion, and Donna Dug­dale was placed sec­ond in the Tra­di­tional Singing Com­pe­ti­tion.
