Laa'l Moirrey Toshee is the Manx celebration of St Mary's principal feast day. The Very Reverend Nigel Godfrey, Dean of St German's Cathedral, talks of St Mary and the many dedications to her in the Island. We visit Chibbyr y Woirrey in Onchan, whilst Sue Woolley tells us of the history surrounding Chibbyr y Woirrey in Ramsey.

One of the Maughold stone crosses was found at Keeill Woirrey in Maughold. Author Sara Goodwins talks about it and what interested her in the Manx stone crosses and led her to produce her book, 'Cross Purposes : An Introduction to Mediaeval Manx Crosses' (Loaghtan Books, £5.95).
