Fèis Tìr a’ Mhurain hit the ground running this weekend, with a heart stopping photo finish for the annual ‘Rèis nam Fèis’ fun run.
Each year the week-long festival of music, drama and dance kicks off with the fun run setting off from Stoneybridge Hall in South Uist. More than fifty people took part in ‘Rèis nan Fèis’ on Sunday 10th July 2016.
In a finish that was too close to call, Kevin Beaton from Balivanich and Joseph MacInnes from Stoneybridge came in first equal at 24.32.
Look out for more results in the next edition of Am Pàipear.
Fèis Tìr a’ Mhurain is now underway at Sgoil an Iochdair, with more than 120 young people taking part.
Tutors working at the fèis this week will perform at a ceilidh in Stoneybridge Hall at 7.30pm tomorrow evening (Wednesday 13th July).
Then, a live music session will take place at the Dark Island Hotel on Thursday 14th July at 8pm, followed by the climactic Ceilidh na Cloinne at 2pm on Friday 15th July in Sgoil an Iochdair.
