Homecoming for mythical god
The House of Manannan in Peel has a special visitor until January – Manannan itself!
He has returned home in the form of a trophy.
Awarded each year, the Reih Bleeaney Vanannan is awarded by Culture Vannin to an individual or group who has made a significant contribution to the Island’s cultural heritage, including via language, literature, art, music, dance and history.
Last year, the trophy was awarded posthumously to two cultural champions, Bernard Caine and John Kennaugh.
