Bannaghtyn / greetings

We'll be running a new class in Peel/St Johns area on a Saturday morning in the autumn. Let me know if you'd like more details

The Cooish (Manx Language Week) this year will be between the 1st and 8th of October. Highlights will include a fun-day at the Villa on the 1st; the Ned Maddrell on the 2nd with Christopher Moseley, a teaching fellow in Latvian at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies at UCL, he is also the General Editor of the third edition of the UNESCO Atlas of World Languages in Danger. Elwyn Hughes, Senior Co-ordinator for Welsh courses at the University of Wales, Bangor, will be on hand to provide training for adult tutors of Manx whilst the week will finish at the Erin Arts Centre with ‘Samling’. Specialising in combining song traditions from Norway and Scotland, the band is recognised as part of a new movement within the European roots scene.

More details later about the Cooish but let me know if you're organisation would like to help with this celebration of Manx Gaelic.
