Gaelg Vio

Last but not least another card from a new country this time the Isle of Man.

The Isle of Man is a self governing British Dependency located in the Irish Sea between Great ritain and Ireland.  The postcard shows you signs in the old language Manx and their English translation.

Manx is a Goidelic Celtic language and has had official status in the Isle of Man since 1985.  The language is now considered critically endangered.
