taking our culture forward


Cammag is the traditional National Sport of the Isle of Man.
Closely related to hurling or shinty in neighbouring Celtic nations, cammag players take great pride in their homemade cammag sticks. David Fisher, one of the original revivalists of the game in St. John's, shows us how a traditional cammag stick can be made.
