Hugh Smith’s letter from Islay

Remembering Donald M MacLeod

GAELIC song enthusiasts were saddened to learn of the death in his Portnahaven home on Friday March 16 of veteran Mòd gold medallist Donald M MacLeod.

He was 91 and in December last year he had lost his retired nursing sister wife Katie, with whom he had enjoyed 58 years of happy marriage and family life.

Born Donald MacIntyre MacLeod in Glasgow on May 11 1926, he was soon back in the Rhinns village where he was to spend his life pursuing the joinery trade and tending the family croft.
