Feàrna (Alder in Gaelic) is the name given to ongoing work in Mull aimed at improving understanding and finding connections between people of Gaelic heritage and people of other heritages living on the island.

By Gaelic heritage we mean people who may no longer speak Gaelic themselves but whose forebears did, and who still carry a distinct cultural knowledge and worldview – ways of thinking, perspectives, customs and practices.

Feàrna comes from a recognition that this wider Gaelic culture is often misunderstood or altogether unseen, which can lead to the unintentional marginalisation of people of Gaelic heritage and further contribute to the decline of the culture.
Our work aims to help redress the balance by sharing knowledge, strengthening relationships and finding more inclusive ways of working with our diverse communities.
