Diluain bidh Ceòl ‘s Craic @ Celtic Music Radio a’ cur fàilte air Gillie NicDhòmhnaill, cèilidhche Gàidhlig na seachdain sa. Cluinnidh sin na trì pìosan ciùil a tha Gillie air taghadh airson cluich air a’ phrògram agus beagan mu dheidhinn a beatha; obair, teaghlach, cur-seachadan agus dè thug oirre Gàidhlig ionnsachadh as dèidh dhi fileantas a ruighinn ann an Gearmailtis agus Fraingis. Cuideachd cluinnidh sinn clàradh a chaidh a dhèanamh an-uiridh nuair a nochd clann-sgoile bhon roinn chiùil ann an Sgoil Ghàidhlig Ghlaschu air an àrd-ùrlair an CCA aig Ceòl ‘s Craic. Tha sinn an dòchas gun tig sibh còmhla rinn airson uair a thìde de chòmhradh Ghàidhlig agus taghadh de cheòl sgoinneil.
