Mac-Talla

Mac-Talla ("Echo") was the name of a Canadian Gaelic newspaper/magazine published weekly - latterly bi-weekly - in Sydney, Nova Scotia, between May 28, 1892, and June 24, 1904, around 540 issues in all.


Its editor, Jonathan MacKinon (1869-1944), born in Invernes Co., Cape Breton, was twenty three years old when he launched Mac-Talla, which was, at the time, the only such Gaelic publication in the world.


Its store of news, local, national and international, letters to the Editor, Gaelic proverbs, poetry/song, stories, translations and articles are a repository of Gaelic cultural ideas.
