25 May 2021

MG ALBA is paying respects to former board member (2008-2011) Professor Kenneth MacKinnon.

MG ALBA Chief Executive, Donald Campbell, said:

“Professor Kenneth MacKinnon was a hugely important and influential Gaelic academic whose research and insights are still being used today.

He served on the MG ALBA board at a critical time in the early years of BBC ALBA and helped to steer Gaelic broadcasting and indeed Gaelic development throughout his life.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this very sad time.”
