Writing under the pseudonym 'Aimsir Eachainn', the late Hector Macdonald scribed a brilliant weekly column that gave a voice to the Scottish Gael at the end of the 20th century. Inspired by the great Irish writer Brian O'Nolan, who published novels under the pseudonym Flann O'Brien but wrote for the Irish Times as 'Cruiskeen Lawn', Aimsir Eachainn commented for more than fifteen years from the North Lochs, creating an array of unforgettable characters, eccentric scenarios, magnificent satire and enraged comment, all of which were entwined with an effortless humor and grace.
