 “THE OTHER TONGUES really is superb. The format, layout, design and ‘specific gravity’ are all marvellous and make the ‘Tongues’ themselves sumptuous and substantial. Thank you for your determination and persistence. >From my point of view you have done a great service to Gaelic. I am deeply grateful. Guma fada buan an leabhar ionmholta seo.”
Hugh Cheape, Sabhal Mor Ostaig (National Centre for Gaelic Language and Cutlure)

‘Funded by generous Irish–British grants from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Foras na Gaeilge, the Ulster-Scots Agency and the Gaelic Books Council in Scotland, The Other Tongues is a beautifully produced, groundbreaking and major anthology, aimed at the general reader in English as well as in Irish, Scots Gaelic and Scots.’

Please join us as Chris Agee  and his fellow editors introduce The Other Tongues. With 79 texts spanning three centuries, this colourful and educative anthology seeks to introduce the general reader to writing in the three minority tongues that coexist with the English language across the North Channel, in Scotland and the nine counties of Ulster. The result is a unique, beautiful and actually classic volume revealing the literary traditions of these three tongues over three centuries in Ulster and Scotland.
