This morning the Blog editorial team woke up with nothing to complain about. It is hoped this situation will not remain for long. The weather is however, ‘caran mossach’, or dreich in the language that 100% of the population would understand as opposed to the 2% thereabouts in Nairn that understand, speak or read Gàidhlig or even combinations of those three. Did you know however that in 1891 27.07% in Nairnshire spoke Gàidhlig and even still 5.91% in 1931? There was no census in 1941 and by 1951 it was down to 1.69 % and remains around that to this day. Sometimes you hear the opinion that Gàidhlig was never anything to do with Nairn; the census figures prove otherwise.
If by any chance you are interested in learning Gàidhlig in Nairn there is an article about classes available in the town in the January archives of this blog
But back to the business in hand. Is there anyone out there that can save the day and submit a good gurn?
