When & Where
Over 200 Lewis and Harris men drowned in sight of Stornoway harbour when the 'Iolaire' sank in 1919. This event, in English, brings alive the tragic story. Professor Matthew MacIver of the University of the Highlands and Islands gives the introductory talk. Stenhouse Primary School and Tynecastle High School then give a performance of drama, Gaelic poetry and song in a new play by William Hershaw. Produced in partnership with Iomairt Ghàidhlig Dhùn Èideann. Funded by Bòrd na Gàidhlig.
