Mundus Games Committee - Request for Special Consideration
« on: September 12, 2021, 09:56:01 PM »

To the Head of the Committee

Since the 18th Century the Kingdom of Eigg has been part of the The Federation of Dál Riata. The Treaty of Dunadd signed in 1798 by King Lachlan IV made my Kingdom part of the Federation however gave us special status to "make provisions for the maintainence of Eiggite traditions and culture.". While this provision does not in effect make any talk of sport it is my firm belief that sporting endeavour is a key part of any people's culture and as we have seen with examples such as the Maori embracing rugby, has helped maintain traditions both in a nations psyche and also their community. With this in mind it is my desire to see moving forward the Kingdom of Eigg compete seperately to the Federation in regards to sporting competition at International Level. As such I request formal recognition of the Royal Eigg Committee for Sport by the MGC and that permission be granted for all Eiggites who have previously represented Dál Riata in top level competition to switch allegiance, something normally outlawed by most sporting bodies once a player has represented a nation.

Should a face to face meeting be required to ensure we can follow this dream of an Eigg team at future Mundus Games, both Summer and Winter, then I would be ready to travel to meet with the Committee at your convenience.

Blessings of the Morrigans

To Her Majesty Queen Aoife II

On behalf of the Mundus Games Committee I thank you for your letter, as you may be aware this years Mundus Games are currently in progress and my presence as President of the Committee is required for various formalities. I believe the matter you raise would require a face to face discussion, I would therefore like to invite you to Day Fifteen of the Games in Daito so that we can discuss this and you can have the opportunity to experience the atmosphere that comes with this festival of sport.

Kind regards

Isabel Sullivan
President of the Mundus Games Committee
