Press Release: 01.06.21
Guth nan Siarach response to Government claims in The Herald article of Monday 31.05.21

"Guth nan Siarach would like it to be noted that we have criticised Government, not the SNP, for its failure to mitigate Civil Service and academic over-reach and mismanagement of Vernacular Gaelic, a failure which prior to June 2020 could have been put down to lack of oversight but since publication of The Gaelic Crisis in the Vernacular Community (Ó Giollagáin et al, 2020), can only be ascribed to intentional minoritisation of Hebridean Gaels."
