Joy brings delight to the Mod with boost for Gaelic language

JOY Dunlop, 23, a development officer for An Comunn Gaidhealach, was yesterday cited as an example of the benefits which the Mod can bring.

She started learning the language only ten years ago, as a result of entering the Mod, but has developed into such an accomplished speaker that she has been put forward this year as one of the adjudicators for today's competitions.

Ms Dunlop, who comes from Connel near Oban, has also been responsible for producing a CD, which is aimed at helping learners of the language to prepare for Mod competitions.
