David Cooney Isle of Man Today:

The new Irish ambassador to the UK is spending five days in the Isle of Man promoting the business and cultural links between the two jurisdictions.
David Cooney, who is currently head of Ireland's United Nations mission in New York, takes up his new post later in the summer..

...On Wednesday he went to the Yn Chruinnaght Festival of music, dance, drama and language in Ramsey and completed a visit to the old House of Keys, Castle Rushen and the Manx Museum.

Also on the itinerary are visits to the House of Manannan, Cregneash and the Manx Language School...

...The visit to Cregneash and the Manx Language Centre marks the 60th anniversary since members of the Irish Folklore Commission visited the Island in 1948 to record some of the last surviving native Manx language speakers.
