Thought you might like a Crimbo challenge to keep you out of mischief. Let us know if you need a translation.

For those of you whose Manx skills are not quite as fully up to speed as Winwaloe's, the translation is:-

A New Year Blessing

A Merry Christmas on ye and a very good year
Long life and health to the whole family
Life and merriment living together
Peace and love twixt women and men
Goods and wealth, stock and store
Plenty potatoes and herring enough
Bread and cheese, butter and beef
Death like a mouse in the corner of the barn
Sleeping safe when you'll be in bed
And the tooth of the flea, may it not be good
