After an absence of almost thirty years, the Mod – a celebration of Gaelic language and culture – is coming back to Glasgow. Mod Ghlaschu 2019 will run in the city from Friday 11 until Saturday 19 October. To mark its return, Glasgow City Archives presents Glasgow Gaels, a free display of original archival material highlighting the history of Gaels in the city. It launched on 1 October and will continue until 31 December. 

Come along and see the wonderful, original records which reveal how native and descended Highlanders and islanders lived, studied, worked, worshipped and brought up a family in the city. Highlights on display will include police personnel records, poor relief applications, a survey of Gaelic speakers in Glasgow schools and items from the Glasgow Gaelic Club.  

Exhibition open during Library Opening Hours.
