Chaochail an t-Ollamh Urramach Ruaraidh MacThòmais an t-seachdain ’s a chaidh ann an Glaschu – sàr-sgoilear agus sàr bhàrd. Bha Ruairidh MacThòmais na ollamh an seo, an dàrna ollamh ann an Cathair na Ceiltis, eadar 1963 agus 1991 nuair a leig e dheth a dhreuchd. 
We heard the sad news of the death last week of Emeritus Professor Derick Thomson (Ruairidh MacThòmais). Professor Thomson was one of the most prolific and influential Scottish Gaelic poets of the past century and was Professor of Celtic here at the University of Glasgow between 1963 and 1991.
