We have all known Brenda Bridson as a stalwart of the Celtic Congress for many years, as joint secretary with her friend Brenda Williamson, as a committee member and as Eaghtyrane (President), but most of all as a friend. Her irrepressible sense of fun will be sorely missed. She had a profound knowledge of the Island and its people which she delighted in sharing, and she was a generous host and excellent company. Our condolences go to her family and her many friends, not just here in the Island, but particularly amongst other branches of the Celtic Congress and amongst the many dance groups in Britain and throughout Europe who came to know Brenda as a dancer with the Manx Folk Dance Society.
