Romatic Journeys on the Isle of Man

It was once believed that the Isle of Man’s location, in the centre of the Irish Sea, was because an English giant stole a woman away from an Irish giant, Finn MacCoul, who was so furious that he threw rocks at his rival. He clearly did not use enough force, hence the rocks landing in the sea, midway between Ireland and England. And thus, the magical story of the Isle of Man begins.
