Cupa na Camanachd
[Hugh Dan MacFhillinein] Cha robh a’ chiad sgoil agam agus an t-saoghal mòr fad às.
[Hugh Dan MacFhillinein] Leth-cheud bliadhna air ais, bha e tòrr na b’ fhasa faighinn a-steach ann an seo. An-diugh, tha na geataichean uile glaiste is feansa mòr. Bha là brèagha ann, tha mi cinnteach, bha mi air am feansa a leum, ach cha tachair sin a-rithist. Tha an-còmhnaidh toll anns an fheansa.
[Hugh Dan MacFhillinein] Fhios, ged a tha an t-àite seo fhèin air atharrachadh gu mòr. The cuid de rudan nach eil air atharrachadh idir agus leis an sin gu bheil clann òg a-muigh a’ cluich. Bhitheamaid a’ cluich a-muigh an seo bho mhoch gu dubh air làrach na sgoile ann an seo agus an seo fhèin. Tha e air atharrachadh pìos mòr. Seo far an robh phàirc againne, ‘s e pàirc blaze a th’ ann, an uair sin agus gu dearbha, cha robh e càilear sam bith a bhith a’ cluich ann. Sìos bhon taigh againne fhèin a-nis aig àireamh trì fichead ‘s a sia, bha a’ mhòr chuid dhe na taighean sin, bha cuideigin ann a bha a’ cluich spòrs is rud a bha àraid mun oisean is an fhìor-oisein shìos an siud, bha grunn cluicheadairean ‘s daoine a bha ainmeil ann an sgioba Chill Mhàilidh, mar eisimpleir. Tha cuimhne a’m, bha Billy Davie a’ cluich ann agus bha fear ‘s dòcha a bha nas ainmeile aig ceann sreath ‘s e Jimmy Chisholm a bh’ air agus ‘s e rèitire uabhasach ainmeil a bh’ ann agus ‘s ann air an t-sràid seo a-nis air aon oidhche chunnaic mi Cupa na Camanachd airson a’ chiad turas. Thàinig bus sìos air an t-sràid ‘s bha e air cuairt a chur air a’ bhaile uile gu lèir. ‘S bha Cill Mhàilidh air a’ chupa a bhuinnig. Agus thàinig iad sìos an t-sràid, dhà no trì tursan, tha cuimhne a’m, am bus a’ dol seachad, ‘s daoine crochte a-mach air doras a’ bhus agus iad a’ smèideadh ‘s ag èigheachd. Bha e dìreach mar gum biodh Chupa na Cruinne air tighinn air ais dhan Chaol agus ‘s e rud mòr a bha sin dhuinne, rud mòr dha-rìribh a bh’ ann.
Chaidh am prògram seo, Lean gu Dlùth, a chraoladh an toiseach ann an 2009.

The shinty cup
[Hugh Dan MacLennan] My first school and the big world was not far away.
[Hugh Dan MacLennan] 50 years ago, it was much easier to get in here. Today, the gates are all locked an there is a big fence. If it was a lovely day, I’m sure, I would have jumped this fence, but that won’t happen again. There is always a hole in this fence.
[Hugh Dan MacLennan] You know, although this place itself has changed, there are lots of things that have not changed and with that young children are outside playing. We would be playing out here from dawn to dusk on the school yard here and here too. It has changed a great deal. This is where our park was, it was a blaze park then, and certainly, it was not pleasant to play on. Down from our house now at number 66, most of the houses were there, there was someone there who played sports and the and the thing that was peculiar about that corner and the point of the corner down there, there was were lots of players and people who were famous in the Kilmallie team, for example. I remember, Billy Davie was playing there and there was one maybe who was more famous at the end of the season, he was Jimmy Chisholm and he was an awfully famous referee and it was on this road now, on one night that I saw the Camanachd Cup for the first time. A bus came down the road and it was on a tour of the whole town. Kilmallie had won the cup. And they took it down the road, two or three times, I remember, the bus going past and people hanging out of the door of the bus and they were waving and shouting. It was as if the World Cup had come to Kyle and that was a big thing for us, certainly a big thing.
