Gaelic Classes

Hai a Chàirdean

sorry there have been no Gaelic classes for so long;  I fear it might be longer yet before we can meet up as we did before in Annan, Dumfries, Castle Douglas and Wigtown.  I hope after Easter  2021, and we will try and hold an AGM then for us and Fèis an Iar-Dheas, but it all depends on the infection rate coming down, which is outside our control as individuals.

Co-dhiu, there is always Duolingo,  and the course on https://learngaelic.scot/a1.jsp
