Does anyone on this site remember hearing about, or even meeting, Aoidhm├¡n Mac Gr├®ag├│ir? If you come across more information, or even have some more information please feel free to post the details. The late Tom├ís ├ô h├ëan├íin first met Aoidhm├¡n in 1937. Aoidhm├¡n, who died in the 1950s lived in the Ligoniel area. He lived off an inheritance, was a fluent speaker of both the Scottish Gaelic and Irish languages, played the Highland bagpipes, and occasionally he wore the kilt.
