taking our culture forward

Cammag is the traditional sport of the Isle of Man, closely related to hurling or shinty in neighbouring Celtic nations.

Records go back hundreds of years, showing the sport's dominance on the Island until only around 100 years ago when football came to Manx shores. As is traditional, the game continues to be played on St. Stephen's Day (26th December) after Hunt the Wren, when the North and South compete at St. John's.

This film offers a short introduction to the sport. It was filmed in 2017. More about this tradition can be found here: Cammag.
