Yn Chruinnaght & Cooish Manx Language Festival – October 2017

Yn Chruinnaght joined forces with Cooish to organise two days of Manx language events and activities on Friday 20th and Saturday 21st October.

Jeheiney 20 Jerrey Fouyir ~ Friday 20 October:

We looked for ways to encourage people to use as much Gaelg on social media as possible that day, whilst the Department of Education and Children peripatetic Manx language team had some specific projects for their students. There were a series of well-attended workshops in Culture Vannin’s headquarters in St John’s, and a Gaelg concert at the Masonic Hall in Peel which included music from Scran and the Mollag Band, as well as a quiz and the launch of a new book from Yn Cheshaght Ghailckagh.

It was also a useful opportunity to brainstorm ideas and to encourage people join in to help develop the Cooish in the future.
