Challenging misconceptions can be difficult
Celtic languages are relevant, have value, and must be fought for - that's according to the guest speaker at this year's Ned Maddrell lecture.
Linda Ervine is a Irish language development officer in Belfast, who's garnered considerable media attention for coming from a Loyalist background.
From 2pm tomorrow (22 Jul) at the Tynwald Mills Conference Centre, she'll be speaking about the Turas Mission, a project connecting Protestant communities to their history through Irish, and how this may translate to the Island.
Ms Ervine says challenging misconceptions about languages can be difficult.
