Written by Archie Fergusson on 21/10/2016
As the Royal National Mòd reaches its final day of competitions in the Western Isles, it has been announced that Inverness will host the Mòd in 2020. Scotland’s biggest Gaelic cultural festival will return to the capital of the Highlands for the first time since 2014.
Provost of Inverness Councillor Helen Carmichael said:
“I am delighted that the Royal National Mòd will be returning to the capital of the Highlands in 2020. Highland Council is committed to the development of the Gaelic language and the flagship Royal National Mòd is most welcome to Inverness. A study showed that the 2014 Mòd when hosted in Inverness generated an impressive £3.5million to the business community in Inverness.”
She continued, “I wish to take this opportunity to thank An Comunn for inviting me here today to warmly welcome and accept that the Royal National Mòd will take place in the City of Inverness and wish An Comunn and the Chairperson of the Local Organising Committee every success with the 2020 Mòd.
