Statement on Spòrs Gàidhlig
A spokesperson for Bòrd na Gàidhlig said: “The Spòrs Gàidhlig project, run by Comunn na Gàidhlig, has been supported by Bòrd na Gàidhlig since its inception 18 months ago because we recognise how sport contributes to using Gaelic and the value that brings. Our initial funding was to establish the project and subsequent funding was for equipment. We have also funded groups of young people to take part in Spòrs Gàidhlig activities. To date Bòrd na Gàidhlig has committed more than £60k to this project.
“Bòrd na Gàidhlig and Comunn na Gàidhlig have been in discussions about further funding for the project. The board is supportive of providing additional funding and required more financial information and projections to progress this further. Bòrd na Gàidhlig remains willing to continue discussions in collaboration with Comunn na Gàidhlig and other funding partners about the future of the Spòrs Gàidhlig project.”
