Nuallairean, a Gaelic Christmas tradition
by Joyce MacDonald, Gaelic Coordinator
There’s been a lot of talk at Colaisde na Gàidhlig about how we’ll get through the cold, dark months of the year without sessions at the Red Shoe, square dances every day of the week and our students who keep us hopping all summer long. We’re determined to make our own fun here in the country, so that means getting together with friends for music, outdoor activities and good times.

Journey in Gaelic Language Learning
By Colin MacDonald, Gaelic Interpreter, Colaisde na Gaidhlig
My name is Colin MacDonald and I work at Colaisde na Gàidhlig as Gaelic/Music Interpreter, and Tour Guide for the Great Hall of the Clans museum. I took my first Gaelic class when I was in grade 11 at Dalbrae Academy in Mabou. Margie Beaton was the Gaelic teacher at the time, and I enjoyed her class so much that I challenged for credit my grade 10 Gaelic class, and also took Gaelic again in grade 12.
Fuarag: A Traditional Gaelic Treat for Halloween
By Emily MacDonald, Gaelic Director, Colaisde na Gaidhlig
At Halloween-time, you will still find a few houses in Cape Breton that serve the ancient Gaelic dish, fuarag. At one time, it was very common to eat a spoonful of fuarag at each house you stopped at on Halloween night. Although all you need to make fuarag is oatmeal and cream, each family and in some cases, each community, had its own special way of preparing and enjoying this dish.
