Jamys O'Meara (limited term appointment)

Jamys O’Meara took over the position of Manx Language Development Officer (Yn Greinneyder) for Culture Vannin on a limited term appointment in January 2019. His role is to raise the profile of Manx Gaelic both within the Island and internationally and to assist organisations who work to support the language. The last few years have seen a growth in interest in our native language and the work of the Greinneyder is to maintain and develop this. Over the last couple of years Adrian has extended the adult language programme to include online lessons and resources. These complement our established publishing catalogue, as well as our two highly praised Manx language apps. Jamys will continue this important work and focus on creating resources suitable for learners at intermediate and higher levels.

Yn Greinneyder is currently working to deliver the Manx Language Strategy, which was developed by Culture Vannin in conjunction with the Department of Education, Bunscoill Ghaelgagh and Mooinjer Veggey, together with the Manx-speaking community.
