Manx Gaelic: Chengey-ny-Mayrey Vannin

This is the www site for Chiollagh Books, a electronic and print imprint specialising in titles about the Manx language and folkways.


This site has migrated from Oxford to Skye where it is now kindly hosted and supported by SMO. The original title of the www site has been kept so as not to disrupt any references or links to the site. When the site was first set up it contained more general material. As it was then the early days of the internet and the www it was essentially a demonstrator site to show just what you could do with electronic resources.


As part of the move of the site, it was decided to pare back most of the early material and links to a core concerned at present with allowing the Chiollagh back catalogue to be made acccessible and downloadable.

Chiollagh Books

Here you can find the entire back catalogue now available for free download. Clicking on the link for the “First Series” will bring you to the list of printed titles. Chiollagh eBooks represents a more recent publication effort and the titles here are electronic ones (again free to download). Manx Notes is a electronic newsletter that contains reprints of source material (often with commentary) dealing with the Manx language and folkways. Kiaull Jiu Manninagh contains copies of my contributions to that newsletter reproduced here with footnotes and full sources; they are part of the Manx Notes series, but appear on a separate page for ease of access. Chiollagh Preprints contains “work-in-progress” particularly compilations of source material around a particular topic.
