Lewis and Harris residents are invited to voice their views on the present state of the Gaelic language by taking part in the Islands Gaelic Research Project.

Run by Gaelic research organisation Soillse – a  research collaboration between the University of the Highlands and islands, Aberdeen University, Edinburgh University, and the University of Glasgow – the Project has seen a series of public meetings arranged throughout the Western Isles to glean views on the current state of Gaelic and suggest ways forward for the language within the Outer Hebrides.

Already meetings have been held in Barra and North and South Uist. 

And next month public meetings will be held in Uig Community Centre on Monday, April 24th (7-9pm); Sgoil Sir E Scott, Tarbert, on Tuesday, April 25th (7-9pm); The Nicolson Institute, Stornoway, on Wednesday, April 26th (7-9pm), and in Cross School, Ness, on Thursday, April 27th (8.30-9.30pm).
