Gaelic book is trans­lated

The Oban Times - - News -

A RENOWNED Gaelic book that out­lines what it was like grow­ing up on Barra and Vater­say has been trans­lated into English.

Air Mo Chuairt was writ­ten by Eala said Chaim­beul and gives an ac­count of grow­ing up as a child on Barra af­ter the First World War, the im­pact of the Sec­ond World War and then re­turn­ing to work as a school­teacher on Barra and Vater­say.

Another Barra school­teacher, Mary Flora Gal­braith, trans­lated the Gaelic orig­i­nal, which was first pub­lished by Acair in 1982.
