‘Tha Feum Air Cabhaig’ The Initiative of the Folklore Institute of Scotland
‘There is a need for haste’ formed the editorial message in An Gàidheal in May 1947, more pithily expressive in Gaelic, calling for the urgent collection of the oral tradition of Gaelic Scotland. Shortly thereafter, The Folklore Institute of Scotland (FIOS) was formed with the stated object of recording song and story and the oral cultural heritage of the country.
