Dedicated to the Gaelic Language of the Isle of Man
Manx Place Names: Ballakilley

Sun, 27 Jun 2021

An exploration of one of the Isle of Man's great Manx Gaelic place names; Ballakilley.

Now a well-known housing development on the edge of Port Erin, Ballakilley takes its name from a farm nearby and its meaning tells us something interesting about where it's located and how it connects with the space around it...

This is one in a series of films exploring the Manx in places names all over the Island, which was created as part of the #gaelg21 celebrations 

This film was produced by Culture Vannin in 2021.
Culture Vannin exists to promote and support all aspects of culture in the Isle of Man.
