Our ancestors were Celts and Norse who settled
on the Isle of Man,
over a thousand years ago. On
this small island in
the middle of the Irish Sea, they established a parliament that would
serve the island people for over a millenium, a democracy that would be
the envy of much bigger nation states, and an independence that would
develop and enrich a unique Manx culture.
Their descendants, members of our Queensland
Manx Society, make up one of the most enduring of local Celtic
organisations. In 2014, we celebrated our hundredth year of continuous
service to the local Manx community, and we would like you to continue to celebrate
this milestone with us in the years ahead.
We have a number of events planned for the
year. If you have an interest in Manx,
Viking or Celtic activities, please join our celebrations.
