Manx Gaelic Features - Yn Ven Seyr Ain jeh Rushen

Published on 2 Jun 2017

A Manx language film about a new tradition with roots dating back to the 1249 miracle of Our Lady of Rushen; the procession of Our Lady of Rushen by the congregation of St. Mary's Church, from the church in Castletown to Rushen Abbey.

The procession of a Catholic statue of St. Mary along the dual-carriageway past the airport and through Ballasalla with a Silver Band is an unusual sight in the Isle of Man. Nigel McFarlane here explains why the procession takes place, what it means for the local Catholic community, and something of its roots in Manx history.
