Carn Editor Steps Down After 29 Years

A new editor has been appointed at this years’ Celtic League Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Pontypridd, Cymru/Wales, following a decision by Patricia (Pat) Bridson to step down after 29 years editing ‘Carn’ magazine.

Carn was originally launched in 1973 and is the Celtic League’s longest running publication. Pat Bridson took over as editor of Carn in 1984 and decided to step down to be able to spend more time writing. The AGM gave thanks to Patricia Bridson for her many years of unswerving service in the role as editor and stated that she felt privileged to have been able to work in such a position for so long. The role of editor is purely voluntary and is dependent on delegates, at each AGM, proposing a new editor or proposing that the existing editor continues in their duties. It has been in the recognition of Pat’s commitment and excellent work as editor that for 29 years, delegates have consistently proposed and voted her into the same role on an annual basis.

However, even though she will not be continuing as editor, Pat has agreed to work on an editorial board (along with others) that was set up at the 2013 AGM in order to ensure the transition between editors runs as smoothly as possible. The General Secretary (GS) of the League formally thanked Pat for her long standing service as editor and was himself proposed and formally elected as the new editor of Carn by delegates.

The main aim of Carn is to act as a link between the Celtic nations of Alba (Scotland), Breizh (Brittany), Cymru (Wales), Éire (Ireland), Kernow (Cornwall) and Mannin (Isle of Man) and highlighting and furthering the aims of the Celtic League. Carn publishes articles in all six Celtic languages in every edition, even though English is also used throughout and is a valuable resource to speakers of Celtic languages and those interested in the Celtic countries alike.

Rhisiart Tal-e-bot is the new editor of Carn and any submissions to Carn for consideration should now be sent to him at editor@celticleague.net.

I am pleased to advise that this work is proceeding smoothly and issues 70 – 147 (covering the period Summer 1990 to Autumn 2010) are now available and can be accessed at:

On a related issue we have also been able to recover the CELTIC NEWS (original) archive material covering the period 1996 – 2001 this predates the Yahoo Newsgroup material and we thought if had been mislaid when the new CL site was commissioned.

It is hoped that this material can also be re-posted on-line in due course.

Carn Autumn 2010

Saturday, September 11th, 2010

NEWS FROM THE CELTIC LEAGUE

CARN AUTUMN 2010

The latest issue of CARN (No 147) has been published and is being distributed to branches and members. The autumn issue of the journal contains a plethora of articles relating to Mannin. Undoubtedly it is the spin-off from the recent successful AGM of the League held on the Island in July which enables the Manx to `punch above their weight’ in this issue.

A full AGM report is included listing all the resolutions adopted at the meeting. Most importantly in this issue, from the point of few of CARN and its future, is confirmation of the decision taken to continue publication for a further three year period.

In addition (as the AGM coincided with Yn Chruinnaght) lengthy Breton and Irish language articles focus on the Manx festival. CARN 147 also carries a substantial bi-lingual obituary feature for Alexei Kondratiev (one of the stalwarts of the Celtic League American branch) who sadly died earlier this year.

If you are not a subscriber to CARN sample copies can be obtained from your National branch Secretary (cost £3 or 4 Euro).

Carn On The Web

NEWS FROM THE CELTIC LEAGUE

CARN ON THE WEB

Just an update to say that as agreed at the last Celtic League AGM plans are proceeding to get all back issues of CARN, the journal of the Celtic League, on to the web in pdf form. A small number of recent issues are already on-line.

This will be a major undertaking for the Celtic League not least in terms of time and effort and it is hoped the work will get underway in October/November of this year.

CARN was established in 1973 and for many years was produced as a quarterly only comparatively recently changing to a thrice yearly format.

The Editors have been drawn from all the Celtic countries (as set out below)

Frang MacThòmais: (1973-74), Scotland
Pádraig Ó Snodaigh: (1974-77), Ireland
Cathal Ó Luain: (1977-81), Ireland
Pedyr Pryor: (1981-84), Cornwall
Pat Bridson: (1984-present), Mann & Ireland

The magazine undoudtedly contains the richest repository of articles and information amassed in any single Celtic political and cultural publication and in almost every issue there is a contemporary article in each Celtic language –
a feature unique to CARN

Its production has been solely funded by membership contributions and its longevity and quality is undoubtedly down to the commitment of the Editors over the years (not least the current encumbent Pat Bridson) and its regular
contributors.

Via the web back issues of CARN will reach a wider audience but more importantly there value as a research tool, in relation to developments in the Celtic countries, will be available to all at the press of a key.
