Research interests

Tha an rannsachadh PhD agam stèidhichte air ceanglaichean eadar cleachdaidhean creideimh ionadail agus dualchas nan Gàidheal Caitligeach anns na h-Eileanan Siar mu dheas bho dheireadh an 19mh linn gus an latha an-diugh.

Tha ùidh mhòr agam ann an seanchas nan Gàidheal an dà chuid air Gàidhealtachd na h-Alba agus ann an coimhearsnachdan Gàidhealach ann an Alba Nuadh agus tha seanchas agus dualchas nan Gàidheal a' nochdadh gu tric san teagasg agam, eadar sgeulachdan, seanfhaclan, agus creideamhan. 

My PhD research is concerned with exploring links between local religious practices and cultural expression in Catholic communities in the Southern Western Isles from the nineteenth century to the present.

I have an interest in Gaelic oral tradition both in Scotland and Nova Scotia and regularly incorporate material on traditional Gaelic tales, proverbs and beliefs into my teaching practice.

Additional information

Ann an 2019, chuir mi crìoch air an Duais ann am Foghlam Diadhaidh Caitligeach tro Sgìre-Àrd-Easbaig Ghlaschu. Bidh mi gu tric a' nochdadh anns na meadhanan craolaidh Gàidhlig gus smuaintean a thoirt seachad air gnothaichean ceangailte ri creideamh.

In 2019, I completed the Award in Catholic Theological Education through the Archdiocese of Glasgow. I regularly appear in Gaelic broadcast media to offer reflections and comment on religious matters.
