It has been a successful Royal National Mòd for Mull Gaelic Choir’s ladies – winning three awards.

The island woman won the Grampian Television Trophy for their performance in the rural choir ladies category.

After singing two songs, they also won the Rotary Club of Blairgowrie Trophy for the highest marks in music, and Elizabeth Jack was handed the Rod MacKenzie, Sgir’ a’ Bhac Memorial Baton for being the winning conductor.

Speaking about the choir’s achievement, Elizabeth said: ‘Wow. We haven’t won it for five years, but we have been in the top three several times.’

‘It would have been nice to have the four trophies,’ she added, with a laugh. ‘But that would be greedy.’

‘We are so delighted,’ she said. ‘The other choirs were so good.’
