To mark the centenary of Hamish Henderson’s birth, we’re joined by Marcas Mac an Tuairneir, poet and Gaelic language advocate. He talks about Henderson’s legacy as a writer and activist. He also discusses the Poets Republic, which has recently published a tribute volume in honour of Henderson, to which Mac an Tuairneir has contributed. He also talks about his own poetry and how he came to write in Gaelic.
