Illiam Dhone ceremony takes place today

Mon, 02 Jan 2012

The annual Illiam Dhone commemoration takes place at Hango Hill in Castletown today.

The celebrated Manx patriot was executed at the site on 2nd January 1663.

Traditionally, speeches at the service are given both in English and Manx.

New Rushen MHK Laurence Skelly will deliver this year's English oration.

The service starts at 2pm.

Hango Hill has been in the news over the last week after a vandal spray painted a crude drawing on the 16th century ruins.
