St Stephens Day players needed.

Fancy a go at the Cammag? The Wren has been hunted so it's down to the Fairfield, bring your own stick.
Cammag (Manx pronunciation: [kʰamaɡ][1]) is a team sport originating on the Isle of Man. It is closely related to the Scottish game of shinty and is similar to the Irish game of hurling. Once the most widespread sport on Man, it ceased to be played around 1900 after the introduction of association football,[2] though it has experienced a revival in the 21st century.

Equipment involves a stick (Manx: camman, meaning "little curved thing"[2]) and a ball (crick or crig) with anything between four and two hundred players. Sometimes whole towns and villages took part, or even played each other. The camman can be any stick with a bent end, and is similar in design to the caman in shinty, both unlike the Irish camán, having no blade. A gorse wood camman, if of suitable size and shape, was a very much treasured possession. The crick can be made from cork or wood, and varied from circular to egg-shaped, sized from approximately two inches in circumference to 'the size of a fist'. Old accounts tell that the crick was sometimes covered in cloth or leather.[3]

The Manx word Cammag, as in modern Scottish Gaelic and Irish camán, is derived from the Gaelic root word cam, meaning bent.[4]

Cammag season started on Hunt the Wren Day (26 December) and was only played by men (of all ages) during the winter. Corris's Close (now Athol Street) was the chief playing-ground in the town of Peel.

Re: St Stephens Day players needed.

Indeed, close to Scots and Irish, it is experiencing a rapid revival, more and more spoken, even some folk who are first language speakers in Manx with English as a second language

I was a sceptic on the revival some years ago, but I am now a fan.
This guy, David Fisher, I went to school with, he spoke no Manx then. Later years he learned the language and raised his kids with only Manx spoken at home, English at school of course, their fluency is unrivalled now.
He is a traditional dry stone wall specialist now, describing the walls of a Tholtan.
