Launch event held at Culture Vannin

Regarded by many as the greatest Manxman of his generation, the autobiography of Dr Brian Stowell RBV was published this weekend, by Culture Vannin.

At the launch, Manx Language Development Officer Adrian Cain paid tribute to a cornerstone of the ongoing Gaelic revival:

Speaking on Manx Radio's Perspective programme, former student and friend Dr Wendy Mercer praised Stowell's attitudes as a teacher:

You can listen to that episode of Perspective in full as a podcast here, where Dr Mercer is joined in the studio by two of Dr Stowell's children - Kerry and Sean.
