A talk by Peter Killey, A Brief History of the IOM Fire Brigade, will be taking place at 2.30pm on Saturday 7th April in the Guild Room, adjoining Peel Methodist Church in Atholl Street.<br/><br/>

Peter ‘Swoop’ Killey is an Officer in the Community Safety Department of the Isle of Man Fire and Rescue Service and is based at Douglas Fire Station. He joined the service in the mid 1980s and has thoroughly enjoyed his career, so is well-placed to tell us about its history and background of what was founded as the Isle of Man Fire Brigade in 1803.<br/><br/>

From the late 1990s Peter developed an interest in digital photography and maintains a very popular website, www.manxscenes.com. <br/><br/>
 Peter is also involved in researching Killey family history.

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.
