Inverness Highland Games - 3

Today we celebrate the Feast of St Mary Magdalene. Here we see Nazioen Mundua taking part in the Opening Ceremony.

The 65 members are from Euskal Herria - the Basque Country. The group first appeared in Inverness at Easter 2008 when they came to perform in the city centre and they quite literally brought the traffic to a halt as bewildered drivers pulled over to have a look at them marching! In case you are wondering, they are wearing bells on their backs. I hope they come to St Columba's for the Easter Vigil next year - they will be a great asset for the Gloria.

Happy Feast!

The Vigil would never be the same again! Sing the Gloria to the Wombles tune??
