Fàilte! Welcome! Gàidhlig gu brath!


Sgoil-Earraich Nàiseanta 2013 Waulking songGun teid a' Ghàidhlig gu math air feadh Astràilia troimh obair a' Chomuinn Ghàidhlig Astràilia.

Tha Comunn Gàidhlig Astràilia na bhuidheann coimhearsnachd neo-phrothaideach a tha a' misneachadh cànan is cultar nan Gaidheal ann an Astràilia. Bhiodh sinn toilichte a bhith a' cluinntinn bho dhuine sam bith le ùidh anns na nithean sin.

Tha a' bhallrachd air a dèanamh an-àirde an dà chuid de fhileantaich agus de luchd-ionnsachaidh. Tha buill againn à feadh Astràilia agus thall thairis.

Tha sinn a' foillseachadh an ràitheachan An Teachdaire Gaidhealach a tha air a chur a-mach gu na buill uile. Bidh sinn a' cur co-chruinnichean is tachartasan cultarail is clasaichean air dòigh bho àm gu àm.

Book Launch

A number of Comunn Gàidhlig Astràilia members attended Sydney University on Thursday 23rd October 2014 for a reception and launch of the 2nd edition of Colloquial Scottish Gaelic: the Complete Course for Beginners by Katherine Macleod Spadaro and Katie Graham, Routledge 2014. The opportunity was taken at the reception for Rod McInnes, Convenor of CGA, to present a cheque to Claire Dunne on behalf of the Celtic Studies Foundation, towards funding for the teacher of Scottish Gaelic at Sydney University.

Before the reception, a fascinating talk was given by Nick Card, director of the excavations being carried out at the Ness of Brodgar in Orkney, about the archaeological findings so far.
