Àinmean-àite Gàidhlig Dhùn Èideann | Gaelic Placenames of Edinburgh

November 11 @ 6:45 pm - 8:15 pm

Ged a chluinnear e gu tric, chan eil e fìor nach robh Gàidhlig riamh ga bruidhinn ann an Dùn Èideann. Bidh an òraid seo a’ toirt sùil air ainmean-àite ann an agus timcheall air Dùn Èideann le tùsan Gàidhlig, air an robh buaidh aig a’ Ghàidhlig agus a chaidh an cruthachadh le luchd na Gàidhlig san linn againn fhìn.
Bidh an tachartas seo sa Bheurla. Tha e an asgaidh, agus chan fheumar clàradh.
Bidh an tachartas seo dà-chànanach. 
Bidh an tachartas seo comasach do dhaoine ann an cathraichean-cuibhle a ruigsinn.
That ‘Gaelic was never spoken in Edinburgh’ is a common misconception. This talk takes a survey of place-names in and around Edinburgh which are in fact of Gaelic origin, or have been influenced by Gaelic, following a look at names coined by incoming Gaelic speakers in the modern era.
This event will be in English. This is a free event. No registration necessary.
This event will be wheelchair accessible.
