Islay Children’s Success at National Mod

As a follow up on yesterday's post about the results of the National Mod in Oban I now have a full list of winners, all from Islay's youth. The results of the adults will follow soon. The list is much longer than the one I published which means that a. I do have a problem finding the results on the National Mod website and b. I have to thank Susan Campbell for the following extensive list.

Children’s competitions for Gaelic Learners were held on Monday 12th October, and the Islay youngsters had some outstanding successes, with Port Ellen Primary School coming first and Bowmore Primary placed second in the Choral Puirt-a-beul for Learners Under 13.
