Colin Murdo Macleod - Captain of The GalGael
12 October 1966 - 2 November 2005

The GalGael Trust was born in Glasgow out of the Pollok Free State M77 protest group. Founded in a strong, socially aware, eco-warrior group and driven by the dynamic Gaelic character of Colin Macleod, the project was destined to make an impact. The GalGael are now widely recognised as the urban & rural social template for cultural & community regeneration in Scotland. A training initiative to take pride in. The following images are a small tribute to the Galgael's work over the past decade and most of all, to the work of the great man who was their Captain.
