The wonderful Manx weather...

Mon, 23 Oct 2017

Culture Vannin is pleased to announce the release of over 90 animated Gifs in Manx that relate to our wonderful, variable and often challenging weather.

Developed by Culture Vannin in conjunction with Gráinne Sheard (Yarny Gráinne), who crocheted the original images, they were all turned into unique and humorous Gifs by Dianne Villanueva.

Commenting on the new resources, Adrian Cain, the Manx Language Development Officer, for Culture Vannin, said:

‘We are always looking at developing new and creative ways to engage the public with the language. Crocheted Gifs in Manx about our weather, which is such a favourite topic of conversation here, seemed an appropriate and tongue-in-cheek way to generate enthusiasm about both the language and our Island.’

The Gifs are free to download from the Culture Vannin website at: and you can check out the weather forecast in Manx by following the social media feeds from Culture Vannin on Twitter and Instagram, or Adrian Cain on Twitter or Instagram.
