Comann Eachdraidh Loch Roag an Ear (East Loch Roag Historical Society) started only in May, 1998, trying to catch a few memories of  "the way things were" before they were  all lost.  We meet periodically to talk informally - or listen - about some particular aspect of "the old days", ending of course with a cup of tea and delicious home baking.

Until the new hall is ready and we have space of our own, our "archives", which include an ever-increasing collection of old photographs, exist only on computer or in boxes under beds.

For now, our big effort in memory-catching and recording of both past and present times is the annual glossy magazine CUIMHNICH ("REMEMBER!"), published in December - the fifth issue by now selling widely not only in both Stornoway and locally from Uig to Barvas, but also in Ottakar's bookshop, in the Eastgate Shopping Centre, Inverness.

To inquire about having a copy sent to you in the post, or back numbers (No. 1 is currently out of print but we plan to reprint a limited edition later in 2004), just e-mail
cuimhnich@breasclete.com
As the cover suggests, this year's magazine has a lot to say about those of us forced to leave home to find a living across the seas, besides much else...
