Donald A MacNeill ISBN:1 899863 31 1 PRICE: pb £6.99 PAGES: 64pp 243 x 171mm 198gms b&w illustrations
A collection of original poetry and song by former Mod Medallist, the late Donald MacNeill, and other Colonsay bards. Published for the first time and with the support of the Gaelic Books Council.
With translations and notes by Alastair Scouller, illustrated by Andrew McMorrine. The work has been published for its literary merit but will also be of interest to students of dialect. It will be remembered that the first Chair of Celtic Studies at Edinburgh was Donald MacKinnon, a Colonsay man, but very little Colonsay Gaelic has been published since his day.
