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.

Due to the uncertainties of the Covid pandemic there was no “actual” Mòd in 2020, but there were some online competitions.
However, this year it was decided that a restricted Mòd could be held, and that there could be some actual physical events.
An Comunn issued a set of Covid guidelines for the performers to follow. There were solo, duet and quartet competitions, but the choirs who were able to come took part in two non-competitive afternoon “Showcase” concerts in the Eden Court Theatre.

Each choir was allocated a ten minute slot on stage, and the concerts were filmed by BBC Alba.
Thirteen members of our choir were able to take part, and it was wonderful to meet up with friends from other choirs after a very long two years.
