Gaelic events in London in September

Here is the exceptionally well produced 10 page newsletter in bilingual Scots Gaelic and English covering Scottish Gaelic events in London during September 2009. Enjoy!

London has the world's oldest Gaelic society (founded 1777) and the world's oldest Gaelic choir (founded 1892). Gaelic was also the first minority language to have its own mailing list I believe - Gaelic-L was founded in May 1989.
