The Christmas class of Kiarkyl ny Gaelgey welcomed Douglaswoman Pamela Wood Rand (second from left), the mom of Kearsley Walsh (far left), who was also Manx born. Kristin Sneed, Kelly McCarthy and Illiam (Bill) Cassidy our teacher range right. Bill McCarthy took the photo. The Christmas class recapped the semester’s conversational Manx and included our usual whisky tasting. To our amazement, we discovered we’d actually learned some Manx over the past months!
