1st - 30th Oct 2019

As the Royal National Mod returns to Glasgow for the first time since 1990, we are looking back at previous Mods held here. The exhibition also highlights the history of the Gaelic language in the city as well as the stories of the Glasgow Gaels who lived, studied, worked, worshipped and brought up a family in the Dear Green Place. 

The Mod has been to Glasgow 12 times previously and we have photographs and newspapers showing how the press reported on these as well as examples of material within our collections including from the Glasgow Gaelic Choir, the George Henderson collection, the Herald Photograph Archive and the City Archives’ poor relief applications.
