Bursary scheme to forge inter-Celtic links

Fluent Manx speakers sought

A crash course in the Irish language is in store for the recipients of a scholarship on offer by Culture Vannin.

It's looking to award two young, fluent Manx speakers with the Kaneen Bursary, sending them to Donegal this summer to attend a school run by Oideas Gael.

Funds for the Bursary were given by the late Professor Brian Kaneen, a keen supporter of Manx and lecturer in linguistic at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia

Manx language officer at Culture Vannin, Adrian Cain says he's hoping the trip will foster stronger links between the two Celtic nations and promote the Manx language:
