Divided Gaels : Gaelic cultural identities in Scotland and Ireland, c.1200-c.1650 by Wilson McLeod( Book )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this detailed study, Wilson McLeod challenges the familiar view that Gaelic Scotland and Gaelic Ireland formed a cultural unit during the late middle ages and early modern period. Many commentators have emphasized the strong cultural and political ties that bound the 'sea-divided' Gaels together during this era, when Scottish Gaels supplied crucial military forces to the Gaelic Irish chiefs, and poets and learned men travelled extensively between the two countries. Dr. McLeod tests this view of a unified Gaelic culture province by examination of the surviving sources, especially formal bardic poetry. Although the evidence is patchy and occasionally contradictory, he is able to show that Ireland was culturally dominant. While Scottish Gaeldom attached great significant to the Irish connection viewing Ireland as the wellspring of historical and cultural prestige, Irish Gaeldom, McLeod argues, perceived Scotland as distant and peripheral."--Jacket

"Duanaire na Sracaire is the first anthology to bring together Scotland's Gaelic poetry from the millennium c.600-1600 A.D., when Scotland shared its rich culture with Ireland. It includes a huge range of diverse poetry: prayers and hymns of Iona, Fenian lays, praise poems and satires, courtly songs and lewd rants, songs of battle and death, incantations and love poems. All poems appear with facing-page translations which capture the spirit and beauty of the originals and are accompanied by detailed notes."--Jacket

Gaelic in Edinburgh : usage and attitudes : a research report by Wilson McLeod( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As an ever-increasing proportion of Gaelic speakers live outside the traditional Gàidhealtachd, the need to support and strengthen Gaelic communities in towns and cities such as Edinburgh is becoming steadily more important. Relatively little is known about Gaelic speakers in Edinburgh, especially with regard to where, when and how the language is used. Detailed information of this kind is urgently needed in order to guide effective language development policies. This report is based on the results of a questionnaire completed by 105 people, principally fluent Gaelic speakers, who live or work in Edinburgh. Questions addressed respondents’ linguistic abilities, use of Gaelic, and views concerning of the language. A copy of the questionnaire is given as an appendix to this report. This research builds on existing census data. According to the 2001 census, approximately 6.5% of Scotland's Gaelic speakers live in Edinburgh. 6,031 people in Edinburgh have some skills in Gaelic
