Packed Manx Legion Club for Annual Mollag Ghennal

The long-standing concert Mollag Ghennal, offering a fantastic evening of local entertainment took place at the Manx Legion Club in Douglas; with a packed house enjoying a range of musical acts, as well as a revival of the celebrated White Boys.

There was also an opportunity to take part in a local quiz and sample supper from the Mollag Band kitchens.

Following a tried and tested format, the musicians included guitarist Mark Lawrence, duo David Kilgallon and Malcolm Stitt, BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award 2018 Mera Royle, rising stars Scran, fellow duo Frank and Jamie Joughin and, of course, the Mollag Band who brought the evening to a close.

But after organising this annual event for twenty five years, members of the Mollag Band have decided it’s time to step back and would welcome any group, or individual, prepared to pick up the baton and organise this popular event.
