Time is running out for competitors to register their entries for Am Mòd Nàiseanta Rìoghail 2018 to be held in Dunoon.

Competitors wishing to compete at this year’s Mòd only have until tomorrow (Friday July 13) to register.

The return of Gaeldom’s premier cultural festival to Dunoon, always a popular location with Mòd participants, was welcomed by convener of the local organising committee Dick Walsh.

He said: ‘Preparations for Mòd 2018 in Dunoon are well under way. The local organising committee and Argyll and Bute Council are delighted to support the organisation of the event again and we’re looking forward to welcoming competitors and spectators and everyone who attends the competitions and events. The local authority has been, and continues to be, supportive of the Mòd in every aspect of its operations. Indeed, we are excited about Dunoon hosting Gaelic’s principal festival in October.’

Am Mòd Nàiseanta Rìoghail will be held in Dunoon from October 12 to 20. For further information visit or
