Manannan's Tribute: A Midsummer tradition in the Isle of Man

Manannan was the Isle of Man's first ruler and he ruled in peace, shrouding the Island in mist to protect it from potential invaders. All he asked of the Manx people was a payment of rushes to be left on South Barrule each year. This is one of the oldest known traditions on the Isle of Man, and one which is still practised today. One Manx family tell us about their own connection to this ancient tradition.
