Gaelic Word of the Week returns #gàidhlig


Gaelic Word of the Week has now returned after its break during recess.

Gaelic word of the Week is a short weekly feature on Soundcloud aiming at people who would like to learn a little about Gaelic and a little of the language while also learning about the Scottish Parliament.

The first in the new series is Muile – Mull – to tie in with the Parliament’s Rural Economy and Connectivity committee  visiting the Island as part of their consultation on the Islands (Scotland) Bill.

We will be looking at more of Scotland’s islands in Gaelic Word of the Week as work on this bill continues.

Bile nan Eilean – dè do bheachd?


A bheil thu a’ fuireach air eilean? An e eileanach a th’ annad? No a bheil ùidh agad ann an cùisean eileanach?

Bu toil le Comataidh Eaconomaidh Dùthchail is Co-cheangailteachd cluinntinn bhuat!

Tha a’ chomataidh a’ dèanamh obair cho-chomhairleachaidh an-dràsta air Bile nan Eilean (Alba).

Tha tòrr diofar amasan poileasaidh ann am Bile nan Eilean:

  • Tha am Bile a’ stèidheachadh dleastanas air Riaghaltas na h-Alba gus Plana Nàiseanta nan Eilean fhoillseachadh agus a chur air beulaibh Pàrlamaid na h-Alba
  • Fon Bhile bidh aig Ministearan na h-Alba agus cuid a dh’ùghdarrasan poblach Albannach ri measaidhean a dhèanamh air a’ bhuaidh a dh’fhaodadh a bhith aig poileasaidhean air na h-eileanan.
  • Tha am Bile a’ moladh gun tèid dìon a dhèanamh air crìochan na roinne-pàrlamaid, “Na h-Eileanan an Iar”, gus nach tèid atharrachadh. A bheil sibh ag aontachadh ri sin?
  •  Tha am Bile a’ moladh saoradh bho na riaghailtean airson uàrdan-taghaidh riaghaltais ionadail gus an urrainn do sgìrean, sa bheil eileanan air a bheil daoine a’ fuireach, a bhith taghadh 1 no 2 bhall (an àite 3 no 4 mar a bhios a’ tachairt gu h-àbhaisteach).
  • Cruthaichidh am Bile cumhachd laghail do Mhinistearan na h-Alba far an urrainn dhaibh sgeama ceadachd mara a stèidheachadh airson uisgeachan faisg air a’ chosta.

Tha a’ chomataidh airson cluinntinn bhuat air na ceistean sin uile.

Tha Gairm fianais (Gàidhlig) aig a’ chomataidh le barrachd fiosrachaidh mun bhile is mun cho-chomhairle.

Tha barrachd fios mun cho-chomhairle agus mun bhile ri fhaighinn air làrach-lìn na Comataidh.

‘S e 25 Sultain an ceann-latha mu dheireadh gus beachdan a chur a-steach. Thathar a’ cur fàilte air fianais sa Ghàidhlig.
