Shinty or in Gaelic Camanachd or Iomain has strong Gaelic language and cultural ties and is currently being broadcasted in an 8 part Gaelic sports series on BBC Scotland featuring shinty and Highland league football, etc. There is also a thirty minute programme dedicated to shinty ("An Caman") which is broadcast on the digital channel Tele G. Many shinty fans did not have access to this channel and so "An Caman" is streamed on the website - www.mnetelevision.com . There is a section dedicated to Sport and every Friday at 18:30 we add the latest "An Caman" programme.

Information on the sport and gettting involved can be found at:

Hi, just an update on what ShintyBoy said - The "An Caman" sports show is a regular on the STV channel in Scotland rather than on the BBC and the show is streamed on www.bounci.tv these days instead of www.mnetelevision.com.

The commentary for all the matches archived on this site are in Gaelic.

For more info about Shinty in Scotland visit the following sites

And to watch games go to www.bounci.tv, I believe there is a programme coming up soon on BBC about the history of the Camanachd Cup, Shintys biggest competition. I'll post details about it on this site when(if!) I can get them.
