Glasgow. Baile Mòr nan Gàidheal. City of the Gaels

19th century painting of the river Clyde at the Broomielaw with steam-boats and quayside activity

A collection of studies edited by Sheila M. Kidd. Originally published in 2007

Over the centuries Glasgow has been, and still is, home to thousands of Gaelic-speakers. This collection of essays, which originated in a conference to mark the centenary of Glasgow University’s Department of Celtic, brings together the work of some of the foremost experts in their fields. From place-name evidence to mid nineteenth-century population movement, and from publishing to poetry, this volume sheds new light on how Glasgow’s Gaels have adapted to their new home and on the contribution which they have made to their native language and culture.
