02 - Mo Chuimhne air Leòdhas (from ANA Winter 2012).

Postby Steaphanaidh Carlyle » October 14th, 2014, 7:13 am

In the second of our re-prints from our newsletter, An Naidheachd Againne, Catriona Parsons tells us about the place she was born - Aignish, in the district of Point on the Isle of Lewis.

Rugadh mi ann a’ baile beag air taobh an ear Leódhais. ‘S e Aignis ainm a’ bhaile bhig seo, “Aignis air a’ mhachair” mar a chanas an t-òran. Tha Aignis ‘na laighe ann a’ sgìre an Rudha, agus chan eil eadar an Rudha agus an còrr dhen eilean ach aoidh chumhang ris an canar Am Bràighe.


I was born in a village on the east side of the Isle of Lewis, by the name of Aignish—“Aignish on the machair”, as the song goes. Aignish lies in the district of Point which is tied to the rest of the island by a narrow isthmus called the “Bràighe”.
