Ta mee gynsaghey Gaelg. (I am learning Manx.) For the Manx speakers on the island, there’s a week dedicated to getting together and chatting in Manx. Here’s their ambitious — and fun — week ahead.
Claare y Chooish 2012 – Cooish Programme – Jerrey Fouyir – October 7th – 13th
Please find below a rough timetable for this year’s Manx Language Week, (Cooish) which is from the 7th to 13th of October.
With the exception of the meal and music all the events are free.
Of particular note is the Ned Maddrell Lecture where our guest speaker will be coming all the way from Canada. Should prove an interesting lecture and discussion
The meal in St Johns usually costs about £15 and it would be great to see a good turnout that evening. Could people let me know if they’re keen to come as soon as they can
The evening at the Centenary Centre should be a fantastic occasion too – don’t miss it! – Tickets £10/£7 concessions on the door or from the usual outlets.
Finally, please come along and show your support for the language on Saturday 13th in Douglas
Let me know if you need tickets and / or more information
