69th CNY Scottish Games

Clan Cameron assembled its members from near and far at the 69th annual CNY Scottish Games and Celtic festival. Skies remained blue all day and a brisk wind kept the temperatures moderate at Longbranch Park in Liverpool.

March of the Cameron Men - 1st Verse
by Mary Maxwell Campbell

Cha'n 'eil òganach treun de chloinn Chamrain gu léir,
Nach téid deònach fo Bhrataich Lochial;
Gu buaidh no gu bàs 's bidh iad dìleas 's gach càs,
Oir géill cha d'thug Camranach riamh.

There's many a man of the Cameron Clan,
That has followed his chief to the field;
He has sworn to support him, or die by his side,
For a Cameron never can yield.

Til next Year - "Slàinte mhòr agad!"
