However, despite the sad news, the work of the Manx Branch goes on. The next event for the Manx Branch of the Celtic Congress will be at 2.30pm on Saturday 2nd February 2019 when David Downie, MBE will be explaining about the background and importance of the work of the Hyperbaric Chamber and his own involvement in the development of it.

The International Celtic Conference will be taking place in the Bristol Hotel, Newquay in Cornwall, 25-30 April 2019. The cost is £450-£525 per person, and the Cornish Branch was looking for bookings and a 30% deposit by 31st December, but if you can let them know asap, they will make every effort to accommodate you at the Bristol Hotel or suggest alternatives. A copy of the booking form is available here.

The International Celtic Congress is held annually to perpetuate the culture, ideals, and languages of the Celtic peoples, and to maintain an intellectual contact and close cooperation between the respective Celtic communities.

The Celtic Congress was founded in 1917, though its antecedents go back some years before that, in order to promote the knowlege, use, and appreciation of the languages and cultures of the six Celtic countries. National Branches of the Congress meet in an International Congress each year in order to help further these aims.
