Bheir soraidh soraidh bhuam

A chailinn dìleas donn

Òran do Iain Breac MacLeòid

Balaich an iasgaich


A’ fàgail Liosmòr

O teannaibh dlùth is togaibh fonn

Tha mo bhreacan fliuch fo’n dìle

All of the above songs are written out in this Mòd booklet!

Other songs:

Bràigh Lochiall

Clachan Ghlinn’-da-ruail

Òrain Luaidh

Gu math slàn do na fearaibh

Mòrag à Dunbheagan

Bidh clann Ulaidh

Cha tèid mise

More puirt-a-beul!

These songs can be found in this booklet.

  3. Liam, once again you rock!!! Thanks for all your work.

  4. Mòran taing, Annag! 🙂

    We should prepare ourselves – you can send me tunes, etc., at

  5. […] Perhaps most illustriously, the tapes include a prize-winning performance at the annual An Comunn Gaidhealach/ The National Mòd (now Royal National Mòd). The festival, which has taken place annually at different sites across Scotland since it was founded in 1892 is modelled on the Welsh Eisteddfod and acts ‘as a vehicle for the preservation and development of the Gaelic language. It actively encourages the teaching, learning and use of the Gaelic language and the study and cultivation of Gaelic literature, history, music and art.’ Mòd festivals also help to keep Gaelic culture alive among diasporic Scottish communities, as demonstrated by the US Mòd that has taken place annually since 2008.
