An Sgeulachd Ghoirid (The Short Story) is a site that's been around for many years that has a few short stories by some well-known Scottish Gaelic writers, some with audio readings and some with video commentary (alas still not subtitled), that I've used quite often in past. But I hadn't visited the site since at least before the pandemic so I panicked yesterday when the old link I have bookmarked led me to a dead page. I inquired at Foram na Gàidhlig and they provided me to with the new link:

http://www.e-storas.com/resources/short ... fault.aspx

So if anyone has the old link (http://www.ansgeulachdghoirid.com) bookmarked, you'll want to update it. And if you've never heard of this site before and you're interested in Gaelic, please, bookmark it! :mrgreen:

Unfortunately, the new site appears updated for mobile devices, but not in the best way, and the layout is a bit messed up on a PC, but all the old content is there and still useable.

For the next two weeks, the 2019 Irish film Finky is on the TG4 website. It's been up on their site since January 1st but unfortunately I didn't know about it until last night.

It's not too bad in my opinion, although it relies to bit too much of negative disability tropes. The main language is Irish, but there are bits of English and a tiny bit of Scottish Gaelic (spoken by an Irish actor playing a Scottish character, so honestly it just sounded like Ulster Irish to me at first). I personally found a lot of the Irish dialogue easy to follow. Subtitles are only available in English.

It contains some heavy subject matter and does warrant a content warning for child death (implied), suicide, negative portrayals of disability and mistreatment of a disabled person.
