Fàilte gu duilleag dachaidh Còisir Ghàidhlig an Eilein Mhuilich.........
Còisir Ghàidhlig an Eilein Mhuilich, the Isle of Mull Gaelic Choir, was founded in the spring of 1978, solely to compete at that year's mod when it was realised that Mull needed more representation at the National Mod.
Duncan MacGilp was persuaded to be conductor, 'just for that year', because there was no thought of continuing in existence in future years!
It was thought appropriate that Mull be represented by a mixed choir, and so a motley band gathered in Salen Hall in April to commence rehearsals for the Mod in October.
At that Oban Mòd, the Choir achieved a commendable third place in the Sheriff MacMaster - Campbell competition, and won the Selma Shield for the highest marks in Gaelic, a Trophy which has returned to Mull on 5 occasions since 1978. Needless to say, it was agreed at the first Annual General Meeting that the Choir should remain in existence, and it has gone from strength to strength, now under the baton of Elizabeth Jack, and the Gaelic tuition of Janet MacDonald.
