How the Gaelic Revival works vol V - breugan MG Alba


An t-seachdain-sa tha Gilleasbuig còir air bhioran mun televisual feast seo “Tartan Pride” a thèid a-mach air oidhche Diardaoin, air a dhèanamh le Purple TV.

Tha e coltach nach e prògram mu dhèidhinn còirichean LGBT a th’ann idir, mar a shaoil Gilleasbuig an toiseach, ach mun iomadh buaidh a thug na seòid air sgioba ball-coise Shasainn, or something [Gilleasbuig: surely some mistake?]

Gilleasbuig and his uncannily accurate predictions  


A luchd-leughaidh chòir, saoil a bheil cuimhn' aig feadhainn nur measg air an fhàisneachd iomraiteach seo a rinneadh le Gilleasbuig tràth sa bhliadhn' ùr?

Tha leisg air Gilleasbuig inneal-ciùil fhèin a shèideadh, mar gum biodh, ach thoireamaid sùil a-rithist air na manaidhean aige:

"A man in a smart suit will present an award to another man in a smart suit, saying 'This has been a landmark year for Gaelic' " - Gilleasbuig 2.1.2014
