Success at the Mull Mod
Members of Aberfeldy & District Gaelic Choir triumphed again at the Provincial Mod held in Tobermory on the Isle of Mull, on Saturday 8th September.
Against some stiff competition,
the quartet "Fuaimeach", consisting of Gilliain MacDonald, Brian
Owen, May Brown and Peter MacIntosh (pictured right), won the Quartet
competition for the second consecutive year. Singing the haunting lament
"Tuireadh Iain Ruaidh", they achieved marks of 93 for Gaelic
and 92 for Music. The Gaelic adjudicator lamented the lack of an
equivalent for the word "Wow" in the Gaelic language...
In the solo contests, Gilliain won both the Neil MacDonald Memorial Shield for the Oran Mor competition, and first prize in the Local Song class. Brian was a commendable second place in the Learners' competition.
