Aberdeen Gaelic Choir, which boasts members from the Highlands and Islands, had a very successful Royal National Mòd 2019.
The choir won Friday morning’s prescribed puirt-a-beul competition, lifting The Greenock Gaelic Choir Cup and the John Macleod Carloway and Edinburgh Memorial Trophy.
Aberdeen are the first recipients of the commemorative bowl, named after the former president of An Comunn Gàidhealach, John MacLeod, which was awarded to the choir with the highest marks in Gaelic.
