Pàdraig MacAoidh (Peter MacKay), born 1979, Isle of Lewis, is a writer, academic, broadcaster and native Gaelic speaker from the Outer Hebrides. His texts are influenced by the long and tumultuous history of his birthplace, in which the “names and nouns are relics and scorings of different cultures – Norse, Gaelic, Scottish, Anglo-Saxon”. As such, he writes in Scottish-Gaelic as well as English, and links the traditions of the old languages and the myths and tropes that they transmit, with a present which is marked by constant breaks, a continual changing and remembering.
