Declaration of Human Rights

Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Tha gach uile dhuine air a bhreth saor agus co-ionnan ann an urram ‘s ann an còirichean. Tha iad air am breth le reusan is le cogais agus mar sin bu chòir dhaibh a bhith beò nam measg fhein ann an spiorad bràthaireil.

English Translation: All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Quotes/toast

He who will not look before him, will look behind him. AM FEAR NACH SEALL ROIMHE, SEALLAIDH E AS A DHEIGH.

“The Hebridean Celt is not of them who cannot sing because they are in a strange land; on the contrary, he never really finds his voice until he has wandered far from the Wester Sea and the Isles.”
Dr. Kenneth MacLeod, Scotland

‘Sláinte go saol agat,
Bean ar do mhian agat.
Leanbh gach blian agat,
is solas na bhflaitheas tareis antsail seo agat.’

Health for life to you,
A wife of your choice to you,
Land without rent to you,
A child every year to you,
And the light of heaven after this world for you.
