A five-year old girl from Oban has won a trio of trophies at her first provincial Mòd.

Olivia Bowman, who attends the Gaelic unit at Rockfield, won the silverware at the Islay Provincial Mòd, which took place on June 23.

She received the Reverend Williams Dundas Shield after winning the five to six years conversation with an adjudicator.

She also won the Mòd Ìle Shield and the Mòd Ìle Cup for finishing first in the five to six years poetry, as well as the five to six years solo singing.

Her mum, Clare Jordan, said: ‘I was so proud of how well she has done for how young she is – and for her first ever Mòd, first ever competitions and first time doing anything solo.’
