Maralyn Crellin introduces a programme which looks at the Colmcille Eireann is Albain initiative, which is increasingly involving the Island, and joins Ruth Keggin Gell to look at events in Gaelg 21, a Manx language festival which is part of the Colmcille 1500 celebrations. One of those events is a Bree session, and we hear from Chloe Woolley about what will be involved, not only as part of Gaelg 21 but also to prepare for Make Music Day on Monday 21st June. 

After a summary of events over the weekend, we look ahead to this year's Laa Columb Killey event in Kirk Arbory with Secretary of the event, Julie Young. Head of Arbory School, Jonathan Ayres, explains how it fits into the wider Colmcille events, though the issue with Covid-19 has prevented link-ups with other school communities elsewhere.
