‘deeply satisfying’ – Roger Hutchinson, The West Highland Free Press

‘a truly inspiring, heartfelt and provocative portrayal of Gaelic culture’; ‘The author asserts that the human condition is self-evident in every culture in the world. Through a hugely varied collection of Gaelic literature, he succeeds in proving precisely that’; ‘****’ – Scottish Field

‘Shore to Shore is an anthology of Gaelic raps, secular poems and aphorisms artistically and vividly bringing the Gaelic world to life… by commissioning literature from leading Gaelic writers, MacNeil displays a multi-faceted perspective of the world and accomplishes a truly inspiring, heartfelt and provocative portrayal of Gaelic culture… The author asserts that the human condition is self-evident in every culture in the world. Through a hugely varied collection of Gaelic literature, he succeeds in proving precisely that’ ‘****’ – Scottish Field

The descendants of the Gaels are scattered far and wide across the world – a diaspora that is at once cherished and overlooked. This unique, heartfelt book brings vividly to life through raps, secular psalms, love poems and aphorisms the Gaelic experience as it was, as it is and as it might be. Shore to Shore/Cladach gu Cladach is a vital legacy of the multimedia project Struileag, at the heart of which lies poetry, and is a demonstration that inside every culture is to be found the whole human condition.

This book contains contemporary poetry and text from all around the Gaelic diaspora commissioned over a three year period. Struileag has also delivered a 60 minute show Children of the Smoke which premiered during the Commonwealth Games 2014, a TV arts show, a CD of the show and an engaged, international, online community.
