Gaelic Update

Sunday, October 29, 2006

TOBAR an Dualchais: This is a GBP3.0M heritage project with the aim of producing an on-line digital archive of over 12,000 hours of recordings in Gaelic and Scots. The recordings include songs, stories and conversations covering the period 1930s-1990s.

Gaelic now on the political agenda: The pace of decline in native Gaelic speakers is slowing. Support for the language is provided by the new Gaelic Language Act and the stablishment of the statutory Bord na Gaidhlig. The latter is a public body with a statutory power in order to implement the National Plan for Gaelic.
