Pope's Eriskay jumper

BBC ALBA FOLLOWS THE JOURNEY OF A JERSEY FROM ERISKAY TO POPE FRANCIS IN THE VACTICAN

Marybell MacIntyre from South Uist has for a long time had a passion for the knitting heritage of the Hebrides, and in particularly the unique Eriskay jumper.

Having learnt how to knit the complex pattern for the jumper traditionally knitted for fishermen, from a group of older women on Eriskay itself who remain the sole custodians of this art form, Marybell decided that her next knitting project would be a truly special one.

BBC ALBA’s Trusadh series followed Marybell as she embarked on not only knitting a jumper especially for Pope Francis, but then hand delivering it to him.

Her Catholic faith has long been important to her, and in early 2015, inspired by the new Pope’s visionary and approachable attitude, Marybell started to knit the jumper specifically designed for ‘The Fisher of People’.

We follow Marybell’s unique personal journey, and see her travel to the Vatican in Rome where she hopes to hand it to the Pontiff in person as an Easter gift.

The Pope’s Eriskay Jumper tells Marybell’s story, but also tells the story of what is a truly unique garment.

Produced for BBC ALBA by mactv, Trusadh - The Pope’s Eriskay Jumper will be broadcast on Monday 21 September from 9.00 until 10.00pm.

Tha meas air a bhith aig Màiribell Nic an t-Saoir à Uibhist a Deas fad greis, do dhualchas fighe nan Eilean Siar, agus gu sònraichte don gheansaidh sònraichte Èirisgeach.

Chan e fighe furasta a tha na lùib agus às dèidh dhi ionnsachadh mu mar a bha thu ga dhèanamh bho bhuidheann de bhoireannaich air Èirisgeigh fhèin aig a bheil fios a-mhàin mun cheàird phrìseil seo, cho-dhùin i gun robh an ath phròiseact a bha fa-near dhi gu bhith da-rìribh sònraichte.

Tha a creideamh Caitligeach air a bhith a-riamh fìor chudromach dhi, agus aig toiseach 2015, ’s i air a misneachadh le lèirsinn agus mothachadh a’ Phàpa ùir, thòisich i air Geansaidh Èirisgeach a dhealbhaich i airson ‘Iasgair nan Daoine’ fhèin, agus i an dòchas a thoirt dha mar phreusant Càisge sa Vatican san Ròimh.

Ann an Geansaidh a’ Phàpa leanaidh sinn Màiribell air a turas prìseil, pearsanta, agus innsidh sinn cuideachd sgeulachd a’ gheansaidh shònraichte seo.
