John Morrison, Chief Executive of An Comunn Gàidhealach, said: “Janet MacDonald has dedicated her life to the Gaelic cause and we are delighted to see her awarded the prestigious Gaelic Ambassador of the year award by the Scottish Government. Her contribution to the Gaelic cause through education, performance and in helping the organisation  of local and national Mòds has made her a real influence for Scottish Gaels of all ages – her impact has been profound. It’s been a fantastic first day and we look forward to the rest of the 2017 Royal National Mòd in Lochaber’.
