Alasdair MacCumhais

​As a Glasgow born,of Harris parents, at the age of 5 I had no English when I started primary School.This was relatively common where I lived in Glasgow and we were known as the Glasgow Gaels. During my 40 year career with BT I had the opportunity of speaking Gaelic daily to my colleagues and customers.

My only regret is the Gaelic Medium Education came far too late for me to benefit. However , since retirement from BT I have learnt to be able to read Gaelic although writing is still a bit of a struggle.

Being a member of An Comunn Gaidhealach Board has given me the opportunity to contribute to the furtherance of the Gaelic language and culture which I appreciate and endeavour to contribute to the best of my ability.
