A’ comharrachadh seirbheis is boireannach priseal

Gaelic Gàidhlig

[Innes Rothach - Preseantair] Bha tachartas sònraichte air An Tairbeart a-raoir, a’ comharrachadh còrr is deich bliadhna fichead den a’ charthannas Crossroads na Hearadh. Tha Mòrag Rothach a’ leigeil dhith a dreuchd mar aon de luchd-stiùiridh na buidhne, buidheann a bha i gu mòr an sàs ann a bhith a’ stèidheachadh ann an naoi ceud deug ceithir fichead ’s a còig. Tha Dòmhnaill MacLaomainn ag aithris.

[Hamish Mac an Tàilleir] An àm ri dealbh a chruthachaidh, ’s gach nì chum feum nan àl,

Gun do rinn an Tighearna ullachadh le chùram is le ghràdh

Do mhuinntir aois is anfhannachd,

’S an àm ri teachd ’an tràth

Gu coileanadh na Ainm-san, thar nan linntean, obair gràis

[Dòmhnaill MacLaomainn – Neach-aithris] Hamish Mac an Tàilleir leis a’ chiad rann de bhàrdachd a sgrìobh e airson a’ chuirm a tha e a’ togail do seirbheis Mhòraig agus a creideamh a tha i a’ faicinn mar bhun-stèidh airson a h-iomadh rudan a tha i a’ dèanamh airson a’ choimhearsnachd.

[Hamish Mac an Tàilleir] Tha Mòrag air a bhith cuide rium dhan a’ choimhearsnachd ann an iomadh dòigh ach seachd àraid anns a rud anns a bheil i a’ leigeil seachad an-dràsta, far an robh i ag ullachadh is a’ cur air dòigh daoine a gheibh a-steach a dhachaighean a chuideachadh is a’ coimhead às dèidh ’s dòcha daoine a bha feumach air cuideachadh.

[Dòmhnaill MacLaomainn – Neach-aithris] ’S e dotair teaghlach a thòisich Crossroads na Hearadh agus thàinig buidheann ri chèile gu saor-thoileach airson a ruith. Bha iomadh dreuchd aig Mòrag ri linn.

[Catriona Mhoireasdan] Tha a h-uile càil. Bha i na rùnaire, na stiùiriche, bha i a’ coimhead às dèidh na riaghailtean agus na laghan a bha ceangailte ri bhith a’ toirt seachad seòrsa cùraim sin anns an dachaigh agus ’s i bha a’ coimhead ris a h-uile càil a bha sin agus chan deach i riamh ceàrr is cha do rinn i càil riamh ceàrr agus cha b’ urrainn dhith gu leòr a dhèanamh airson a’ bhuidheann.

[Dòmhnaill MacLaomainn – Neach-aithris] Ged a bha mòran dùbhlain na lùib, thug an obair toil-inntinn dhith.

[Mòrag Rothach] Bha e a’ toirt toileachadh mòr dhomh nuair a gheibh thu a-steach a dachaigh agus bhiodh cuideigin a’ toirt seachad cùram nach robh ’s dòcha faighinn cadal na h-oidhche, nach robh faighinn a-mach agus bha cuideigin a’ dol a-steach, bha iad a’ faighinn a-mach, a’ dèanamh rud sam bith a bha iad ag iarraidh no uaireannan son a’ dol a chadal. Tha cuimhne a’m nuair a thòisich sinn an toiseach, bha fhios a’m, bha boireannach a tha bha seo a’ toirt cùram seachad dha màthair fad an t-siubhail agus tha cuimhne a’m, chuir mi fòn thuice agus bha mi ag innse dhi mu dheidhinn Crossroads, agus thuirt mi rithe “ciamar a tha sibh fhèin?” agus stad i agus thuirt i “”Cha do dh’fhaighnich duine sin dhomh riamh”. “Bidh daoine a’ tighinn a-steach”, bha i ag ràdh “bidh iad a’ faighneachd dhomh ciamar a tha do mhàthair ach cha do dh’fhaighnich duine dhomh ciamar a bha mise ”.

[Dòmhnaill MacLaomainn – Neach-aithris] A-raoir, chaidh taing a thoirt seachad airson na rinn i, is a’ choimhearsnachd dòchasach gu bheil a’ fàgail an t-seirbheis ann an suidheachadh làidir.

[Hamish Mac an Tàilleir] Chan eil Mòrag mòr agus chan eil i bog agus fhuair i àite mòr ann an inntinn is ann an cridhe dhaoine a thaobh an seòrsa pearsa a th’ aice, an seòrsa tè a th’ innte, a h-uile càil a tha i air a’ dèanamh, tha i ga dhèanamh ann an co-cheangail ri a creideamh fhèin agus tha sin air a bhith ga cumail a’ dol, tha mi a’ smaoineachadh agus tha e a’ ciallachadh gu bheil i dleasdanach dha-rìribh anns a h-uile càil a tha i a’ dèanamh.

[Hamish Mac an Tàilleir] Mar sin, air latha na cunntais, nuair a ghairmear sinn gu Nèamh,

’S e ar dùrachd dhut, gun cluinn thu ’ ghuth on a’ chathair gheal riut fhèin

“Ged nach saoil thu gun do choilean thu aon nì dhaibh siud a rinn feum

Ann am frithealadh don fheumach b’ ann a rinn thu sin dhomh fhèin.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Commemorating a precious service and woman

English Beurla

[Innes Munro - Presenter] There was a special event in Tarbert last night, marking more than 30 years of the charity Crossroads in Harris. Morag Munro is retiring as one of the directors of the group, a group that she was heavily involved in setting up in 1985. Donald Lamont reports.

[Hamish Taylor] At the time of creation, and everything to keep need of nursing,

That the Lord prepared with care and love,

To people who are old and infirm,

In future and youth

To serve in his name, over the centuries, gracious work

[Donald Lamont - Reporter] Hamish Taylor with the first verse of his poem he wrote for a concert he organised for Morag’s service and which she sees as a foundation for many things that she does for the community.

[Hamish Taylor] Morag has been with me in the community in many ways but especially in the thing she is retiring from just now, where she was preparing and organising people who will go into homes and help and look after people who perhaps need help.

[Donald Lamont - Reporter] It was a family doctor who started Harris Crossroads and a group came together voluntarily to run it. Morag had many jobs as a result.

[Catherine Morrison] Everything. She was a secretary, a director, she was looking after the rules and the laws that were connected to giving that sort of care in the home and she was looking after all that and she never went wrong and she never did any wrong and she couldn’t do enough for the group.

[Donald Lamont - Reporter] Although there was a lot of challenges involved, the work gave her satisfaction.

[Morag Munro] It gave me great joy when you got into a home and someone would be giving care they weren’t perhaps getting sleep at night, they weren’t getting out and someone was going in, they were getting out, doing anything they wanted or at times getting to sleep. I remember when we started, I knew, this woman was giving care to her mother all the time and I remember, I called her and I was telling her about Crossroads and I said to her “How are you, yourself?” and she stopped and said “Nobody has ever asked me that”, “People come in”, she was saying “They ask me how my mother is but they don’t ask me how I was”.

[Donald Lamont - Reporter] Last night she was thanked for what she has done, and the community are hopeful that she is leaving the service in a strong position.

[Hamish Taylor] Morag is not big and she is not soft and she has a big place in people’s hearts and minds because of the sort of personality she has, the sort of person she is everything she does, she does it in connection to her own faith, and that has been keeping her going, I think and it means she is truly faithful in everything she does.

[Hamish Taylor] As such, on the Day of Judgement, when we are called to Heaven

It’s our wish for you, that you willll hear his voice from your own white chair,

“Although you never wondered that you served one thing for them that did good

To serve the needy, you did that for me”
