Maoileas M. Caimbeul / Myles M. Campbell:

"...Niall stands out as somewhat different. He is between being a traditional local poet and a lyrical modern poet."

Uilleam Moireasdan / Willie Morrison ("North Star", 22.5.2004):

"Niall... is a man of considerable linguistic and literary ability."

Dè tha Niall ris san latha a th' ann / latter-day occupations?

Os rud e gu bheil Niall ri obair eadar-theangachaidh, bidh e cuideachd a' dèanamh oidhearp air òrain a tha measail aig daoine a thionndadh gu Gàidhlig, gu tric is minig a' dèanamh seo do dhaoine a dh'iarras e.

As Niall is engaged in translation work, he also attempts to translate popular songs, often at someone's request.

Bidh na h-òrain sin ri fhaicinn an seo (faicibh an duilleag "Tionndadh") - tha mi an dòchas gun còrd iad ri daoine. Agus san earrann seo cuideachd tha dà òran Runrig ann an cruth nach fhacas a-riamh roimhe iad...

Those songs will appear here (please see the "Translation" page) - I hope they are enjoyed. And also in this section are two Runrig songs as never seen before...
