Connecting readers worldwide with Gaelic language & culture
Bradan Press, founded in 2016, carries on the 180-year tradition of Scottish Gaelic publishing in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Bradan means “salmon” in Scottish Gaelic, and refers to the Salmon of Wisdom in the Gaelic oral traditions of Nova Scotia, Scotland, and Ireland.
Latha a’ Bhreacain sona dhuibh! Happy Tartan Day! Bradan Press is celebrating Tartan Day with the announcement of Tartans of Eastern Canada by Paul McCormick, a new book to be published in September 2021.
Creatures magical and human, worlds strange and familiar, fantasy and a touch of horror. The debut graphic novel from Cape Breton author-artist Angus MacLeod is a collection of a dozen tales inspired by old stories, history, and ancient beliefs of the Gaels and the author’s imagination. Illustrated in black-and-white.
Nova Scotia educators: a Nova Scotia Gaelic flag is a great addition to your school, for Gaelic Month in May and year-round! Bradan Press is happy to announce that we can now supply the official Nova Scotia Gaelic flag!
Last week we became aware of a different, unauthorized Gaelic translation of Bana-phrionnsa a’ Phoca Phàipeir that was being disseminated without permission from either Bradan Press or the original publisher of The Paper Bag Princess in English. Bradan Press thanks everyone who has purchased our authorized Gaelic translation – you have helped support the original creators of this beloved book, the native Gaelic-speaking translator, and TWO small independent Canadian publishers!
In honour of St. Patrick’s Day, you can learn more about The Irish Gaelic Tattoo Handbook and where to get your copy here.
