Gaelic Nova Scotia Month

Gaelic Nova Scotia Month

Friamhaichte a’ seo – Gaelic Runs Deep Here

May is Gaelic Nova Scotia Month.  In the old Gaelic calendar, May month is the beginning of the summer season.  

Customs associated with May support the Month’s theme: Gaelic Runs Deep Here (PDF).

As Gaels are a Nova Scotia people with a richness of cultural expression: poetry, song, music, dance, stories, foodways, lineages, spirituality and customs, many Nova Scotians have connections to Gaelic heritage.


Nova Scotians have opportunities to share stories about their connections, how their ancestors arrived in Nova Scotia and Canada and how they shaped our country up to the present.

Stories can be shared on Twitter #GaelicNS #GaelicMonth or through Facebook .
