Comunn na Gàidhlig (CnaG) has appointed three new directors to its board of directors. They are Laura Maclennan, Kirsty Macdonald and Catriona Murray.
Laura comes from Barvas but lives in Glasgow, where she works for the BBC. Kirsty is originally from North Uist but lives in Edinburgh where she works as Gaelic Officer for Historic Scotland. Catriona Murray, who comes from Laxdale works as a lecturer at Lews Castle College.
Kenneth Maciver, CnaG Chair, said: “I am delighted to welcome Laura, Kirsty and Catriona to CnaG. They all live and work in different communities across Scotland, they all bring their own particular skills and talents to the table and they all come to CnaG with their own thoughts and ideas on how to best help with development of the language.
“I look forward to working with them in the coming years.”
Comunn na Gàidhlig is responsible for the delivery of a wide range of Gaelic services including various schemes for students, a bilingual Signage Scheme but particularly youth work in the Gaelic Initiatives they have established in a number of communities across Scotland.
Most of their work is focused on delivering work contracted to them by Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Bòrd na Gàidhlig, the principal public authority with responsibility for developing Gaelic.
