Nova Scotia working on new Gaelic website

HALIFAX - The Nova Scotia government is developing a new interactive website to promote and preserve the Gaelic language and culture.

Heritage Minister David Wilson says the site will offer samples of local Gaelic dialects, songs, stories, music, dance and customs.

The site is called "An Drochaid Eadarainn," which means "the bridge between us."

It was developed by the Highland Village Museum in Iona, N.S., as part of Gaelic Awareness Month.
