Does the Isle of Man need another national day?


It's an idea that the government has agreed to look into following a question in the House of Keys today.


North Douglas MHK Bill Henderson believes we should have another holiday, besides Tynwald Day, to celebrate Illiam Dhone or another Manx worthy.


The execution of Manx martyr Illiam Dhone is remembered on 2nd January, but it isn't an official national day or bank holiday.


Chief Minister Tony Brown says the matter will be considered and the public would be consulted.(play audio file below)
