Dedicated to the Gaelic Language of the Isle of Man

New York Times feature about Manx reaches circa 9 million readers!

9 million people will be reading about the Manx language in the New York Times today and tomorrow! 

We're absolutely delighted with the lovely, long feature about Manx, which has come out online today. It features some of the organisations and individuals who are working hard to use, support and promote Manx, and you can read it here: Manx Language, almost once silenced, is now the talk of the town - New York Times article November 24 2022. If you'd like to get your hands on a copy of the paper, the print version will be available tomorrow - Friday 25th November 2022. 

Featuring some lovely photography, and lovely quotes, it's a brilliant read and a fantastic boost for Manx and the Isle of Man. 

"The survival of Manx into the 21st century is a testament to the island's sense of itself as a place apart, with its own identity - and political autonomy"

"We're trying to make it accessible to everybody, and inclusive ... it doesn't matter if you just moved over to the Isle of Man yesterday ... if you want to learn Manx, then it's open to you; likewise if you've been here all your life" 

Gaelg aboo - hurrah for Manx!

With thanks to journalist Megan Specia, and photographer Mary Turner, for this excellent feature.
