The Manx Bard inauguration 2017 - Cushag's 'Traa dy Liooar' read by Bill Quine

Published on 24 Aug 2017

A reading of one of the best-known and best-loved of all poetry from the Isle of Man: 'Traa dy Liooar', Josephine Kermode, better known as 'Cushag'.

This poem relates to the well-known Manx Gaelic saying which translates as 'Time Enough.'

The phrase is often used to excuse putting off tasks which might be better done immediately.

This performance by Bill Quine was delivered as a part of the event at Moorhouse Farm, Isle of Man, organised to announce the Manx Bard 2017.
