An­nual Ard­na­mur­chan Mòd hits the high notes

The Oban Times - - News -

MORE than 300 peo­ple – the largest num­ber of en­tries for many years – com­peted in the an­nual Mòd Aird nam Mur­chan last Fri­day.

The Mòd was once again held in Ard­na­mur­chan High School, with com­peti­tors com­ing from the penin­sula’s five pri­mary schools.

Con­vener Fiona MacLean said: ‘We had a good num­ber of choirs and five ac­tion songs, which was fan­tas­tic.

‘That is a lot for us. Hav­ing more than 300 peo­ple com­pet­ing is more than usual for us.

‘Hav­ing the na­tional Mòd com­ing to Fort Wil­liam this year has given us an edge and we hope first prize-win­ners will go on to com­pete in the Mòd. The Mòd sup­ports our five pri­mary schools and gives the four non- Gaelic-medium schools a chance to take part in Gaelic com­pet­i­tively.

‘The high school has been so gen­er­ous in hav­ing us be­cause we turn the place up­side down.

‘We can’t thank them enough.’
