Your University, One Photo at a Time

Oilthigh Ghlaschu

Oilthigh GhlaschuThere are three ways in which I have seen “University of Glasgow” spelled around campus, the first being in English, the second in Latin, and the third in Gaelic, as seen in the photo above.

The photo is from the alley between the University Library and University Gardens, a mews building (is that the right term?) containing an annex of the Department of Celtic and Gaelic at 3 University Gardens.

The Department of Celtic and Gaelic (Roinn na Ceiltis is na Gàidhlig) at the University of Glasgow, according to their website, “covers the ancient, medieval and modern periods in three Celtic languages, Scottish Gaelic, Irish, and Welsh, with primary interests in Scottish Gaelic and Irish language and literature, and in medieval Celtic literatures and history.”
