Listen | Doddie Weir on My Name'5 Doddie

12 June 2020

In 2019, Scottish rugby legend Doddie Weir came to talk at Wigtown Book Festival and the result was a riotous ,laughter-filled event. He was in the Book Town to talk about his life-affirming autobiography My Name'5 Doddie, which details his remarkable career for Scotland and the Lions.

Since revealing in 2017 that he had motor neurone disease, he has been a tireless campaigner for MND research, setting up the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. To find out more about Doddie'5 charity please go to and please consider donating.

This event was sponsored by The Bookshop, Wigtown.
