Donald MacKinnon is a client at Craigard Day Centre. Here he talks about his activities at Craigard. He also talks about the pictures he's exhibiting at the Taigh Chearsabhagh art centre. He goes on to say what else he does during the week, mentioning the names (NAAFI, Lovats) of another workplace, and his musical activities at the weekend.

This video is taken from the DVD 'Guthan nan Eilean' which was created by Sabhal Mòr Ostaig and Cothrom Ltd as part of the European Leonardo POOLS project. The DVD comprises 40 short videos, aimed at learners of both English and Gaelic, which show daily life in Uist and Benbecula.

The project coordinator for 'Island Voices' was Gordon Wells. Link to the project blog here

Dòmhnall MacFhionghain, 's tha mi a' fuireach ann an Cnoc Cuidhein.

Bidh mi a' tighinn a-mach a Chreag Àrd a h-uile dà latha san t-seachdain - Dimàirt agus Diciadain.

Bidh sinn a' gabhail tì an toiseach. Bidh sinn an uair sin a' dèanamh fuirm agus na stools, no ge be dè bhios againn ri dhèanamh. Bidh sinn an uair sin a' dol a Thaigh Chearsabhagh airson lunch, gu math tric sandwiches le tuna no salmon agus salad.

Cha dèan mi ach na dealbhan a thaghadh seach gu bheil an taigh agamsa cho faisg air a' mhuir. (Bha mi) riamh keen air bàtaichean, 's dol a dh'iasgach. An uair sin, nuair a bhios an centre a' dol air tripichean as t-samhradh a Steòrnabhagh no dhan Eilean Sgitheanach bidh mi a' falbh air na ferries.

Bidh mi ag obair sa Naafi - well, 's e Lovats a th' ann a-nis - trì latha san t-seachdain - Diluain 's Dimàirt …. Diluain 's Diciadain 's Dihaoine.

Aig a' weekend bidh mi a-staigh ach a' dol chun accordion and fiddle club a h-uile dàrna Disathairne air feadh a' gheamhraidh, ach a dh'aithghearr bidh e deiseil airson an t-samhraidh.

Chan eil aona note (agam) - ach dìreach a' togail nan tuneichean bho tapeichean no CD no ge be càite eile an cluinn mi iad … a' cluich coltach ri Iain MacLachlainn, no Bobby MacLeod, no Jimmy Shand, no fear dhe na h-old favourites.
