Bhí an ceolchoirm go maith aréir. Bhí buachaill amháin darb ainm Arwel Lloyd ag ceol as Breatnais agus ag seinm ar an ghiotár. Sheinn sé agus cheol sé go maith, ach bhí na hamhráin uilig an-chosúil le cheile domsa. Ní raibh a lán daoine ann, agus ba teaghlaigh agus cairde an amhránaí iad an chuid is mó de na lucht éisteachta. Inniu tá siad ag tosú ar thuras rothair timpeall an Bhreatain Bheag chun airgid a bhailiú le haghaidh Taighde ar Ailse.

Inniu d’obair mé ar maidin, mar is gnách, agus sa tráthnóna chuir mé seomra in áirithe in óstán sa Ghearasdan, agus cheannaigh mé ticéad traenach go Malaig – tá mé ag dul go dtí an t-Eilean Sgitheanach ag deireadh an mhí seo chugainn, agus ar an mbealach beidh mé ag fanacht oíche amháin sa Ghearasdan, mar ní féidir liom an turas ar fad a dhéanamh i gceann lá amháin.

The concert was good last night. One lad called Arwel Lloyd sang in Welsh and played the guitar. He played and sang well, but all the songs sounded very similar to me. There weren’t many people there, and the most of the audience were the singer’s family and friends. Today they are starting a cycling tour around Wales to raise money for Cancer Research.

Today I worked in the morning, as usual, and in the afternoon I booked a room in a bed & breakfast in Fort William, and bought a ticket to Mallaig – I am going to the Isle of Skye at the end of next month and will stay in Fort William for a night because it’s not possible to do the whole journey in a day.
