Mòd Nàiseanta Rìoghail 2016 / Royal National Mod 2016

Pupils from Inverness Royal Academy represented the school in a variety of competitions at this year’s Royal National Mod hosted by the Western Isles. We would like to commend all those who participated, took time from their holidays and travelled to represent the school. All performed to the very best of their ability and were a credit to the school. Prize-winners are listed below.
