Ionnsachadh - Internet mailing lists

A good source of Gaelic on the Internet is the email lists. These do not use the World Wide Web, but instead send you email messages whenever someone sends a message to the list organiser. There are several lists which serve Scottish Gaelic (see below). To start getting messages you simply send a message asking to subscribe. If at any time you wish to stop getting the messages, you send another message asking to unsubscribe. See below for the relevant addresses.

There is no charge other than your normal Internet costs and phone bill.

We would be grateful for any information about the currency of these or other relevant lists. Please contact us at fios@ozgaelic.org

Fluent

 
Gaelic-L

Originally for conversations in the three Gaelic languages (Scottish, Irish and Manx).

The list grew too big (more than 1300 members) so the other lists were formed.

This list is now used by those who are fairly fluent in at least one of the three Gaelic languages and who also know or want to know a bit about the others.
