MÒD EVENTS HOTTING UP

Published: 24 Mar 2010

Mòd activities organised by the Local Organising Committee are gathering a
pace to help raise funds for the National Mòd which will be held in October
2010.
A youth disco has been organised in Skinandis on Friday 26th March and for
those that enjoy a different kind of music there’s a ceilidh in Strathy
Hall on the evening of Saturday 27th.
The ceilidh has a great line up of artists including Mary Ann Kennedy, well
known Gaelic singer/musician.
Mary Ann Kennedy said “Congratulations to the Mòd Ghallaibh team who have
been working so hard, not only to ensure the success of the festival in
October, but to leave a positive and lasting Gaelic legacy in Caithness as
a result of the Mòd.  I’m really looking forward to being in Strathy on
Saturday – it was one of the venues for an early “Cliar” gig and I have
fond memories of the hall, the area and, most importantly, all the folks in
the area.  I’m looking forward to coming back.”
Carol-Anne Mackay, Events Support Officer to the Local Organising Committee
of Mòd Ghallaibh said “The pace is starting to quicken as the Local
Organising Committee start to organise different events to raise funds for
the National Mòd.  There are a lot of local people giving up their free
time to organise a variety of events like these.  We really hope that
people will come out and support them.
“We’re always looking for ideas for fund raising events to support the Mòd
and if anyone has any ideas or wish to get involved I would encourage them
to get in touch with me.”
