The sport of shinty, with its historical roots dating back to the fifth century and well-known throughout Scotland since at least the 17th century, has made a welcome appearance on Arran during the Fèis Arainn festival.
Tag: Feis Arainn
The culmination of just four days of classes at this year’s annual Gaelic celebration known as Féis Arainn resulted in a magnificent demonstration of the newly-acquired skills by the children who attended the festival and performed in the final concert.
Fèis Arainn is absolutely delighted that one of their team, Alistair Paul, is now a published Gaelic author with his new book Linne Dhomhain (Deep Pool) from Luath Press which was awarded the prize as best unpublished manuscript in the Gaelic Literature Awards 2020.
Fèis Arainn returns this year for a week of fun, instrumental tuition, singing, drama and art starting on Tuesday 28 to Friday July 31.
