The Annual General Meeting will be held at 2.00pm on Saturday 3rd November in the Guild Room, Atholl Street, Peel. As well as an opportunity to become involved in the work of the Celtic Congress, there’s an opportunity to hear about this year’s International Celtic Congress which was held in the Lycée Le Likès in Kemper, Breizh (Quimper, Brittany) over the period 16th-21st July this year. Sandra Caley tells us more about it following the AGM.

The theme of the talks given at this year’s International Celtic Congress was What do social media contribute to the revival and/or survival of the Celtic languages? The Island’s contribution was prepared by Phil Kelly, RBV for inclusion in the series of presentations.

Representing the Island in the inter-Celtic concert was singer and musician Ruth Keggin.

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 1902 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.
