The Oban Times - - NEWS -

Co­mann Eachdraidh Lios Mor had much to be proud of when it cel­e­brated 10 years since open­ing its mu­seum with its ex­hi­bi­tion room, li­brary, shop and cafe.

The orig­i­nal di­rec­tors, re­spon­si­ble for the Her­culean task of erect­ing this build­ing, were in­vited to a meal on Fri­day March 24 to thank them and to cel­e­brate 10 years of keep­ing alive and pro­mot­ing the is­land’s Gaelic cul­ture.

This was fol­lowed by a so­cial evening in the mu­seum, where many other is­landers joined the party and were treated to some of the is­land’s tal­ented per­form­ers.

Dun­can Liv­ing­stone and Laura Cook per­formed Gaelic song and Arthur Cross, Dun­can Fer­gu­son and Shona Wright were in­stru­men­tal­ists.

The meal was cooked and pre­sented by the Lis­more Com­mu­nity Cafe staff, led by its new chef Dan Johnstone and his as­sis­tant Pia Delle-mann. The cel­e­bra­tion cake, rep­re­sent­ing the re­con­structed cot­tage Taigh Isea­bal, was made by Katy Crossan.

Anne Liv­ing­stone thanked every­one in­volved and pre­sented Katy MacGre­gor with a bas­ket of flow­ers in hon­our of her 80th birth­day.

The orig­i­nal di­rec­tors of Co­mann Eachdraidh Lios Mor cel­e­brate at their din­ner.

Dun­can Liv­ing­stone en­ter­tains by singing a Gaelic song.
