Cooish

Cooish Manx Language Festival

Yn Chruinnaght will join forces with Cooish again to organise the entertainment during the Cooish Manx language festival.

In the past two years, Yn Chruinnaght has joined forces with Cooish to organise Manx language events and activities.

We look for ways to encourage people to use as much Gaelg on social media as possible during the festival, whilst the Department of Education and Children peripatetic Manx language team sets some specific projects for their students. There have been 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 have included music from Scran and the Mollag Band, as well as a quiz and other fun ways to use Manx.

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