Born on this day, October 26, 1911
MacLean was one of the foremost Gaelic poets of the 20th century. One of his major themes was the Highland Clearances. His best known poem, Hallaig, covered this topic in a very personal way, as it is also the name of the village where he was born, on the Isle of Raasay.
MacLean died aged 85 in Inverness, in 1996.

My thought for the week .... lol
From Feb 1st England will cease to exist in Brussels, they will have no say, no voice.
Whatever the loudmouth loons shout - England cannot survive without some kind of trade deal with the EU (distance / proximity being the main reasons)
Do you think that maybe ….. the EU, will ask/demand that NI and Scotland be allowed to hold secure referendums as part of the "trade negotiations"... ? hmmmmmmmm
