Valentine's Day in Manx


Bannaghtyn

We hope to start a new class for beginners shortly in St Johns on a Tuesday evening, please contact me for details; indeed, what better way to show your love for someone by enrolling them on to a Manx Gaelic Course! Learning Manx is similar to a successful marriage: its takes commitment, determination and love but is ultimately rewarding and life affirming. If you would like advice on making that commitment (to learning Manx and not marriage that is) then please drop me a line.
