The figure of Bishop Thomas Wilson looms large in Manx history. We go back to the very start of his episcopacy, with his appointment in November 1697 and the other official stages leading up to his installation and enthronement in St German's Cathedral on St Patrick's Isle on 11th April 1698. There then followed a long tenure of office until his death in 1755.

Our short story is based on one written originally in English by Simon J Wood - but without the emphasis on a heavy Scottish accent. In this translation it's called Cheer Cooie da Treanee - A Land Fit for Heroes.
