Torchlight opening for Mod in Paisley for the first time
The Royal National Mod kicked off in style last night with a torchlight procession through this year’s host town of Paisley.
This is the first time the 121-year-old Gaelic cultural showcase has been held in the Renfrewshire town, and the local organising committee pulled out all the stops with the spectacular parade from the top of High Street to Paisley Town Hall, where the opening ceremony took place.
A further opening high note was provided by the Scottish Government who announced £100,000 funding for Gaelic education projects across Scotland.
