  6. since called in Chronicle, under year 1376, 'Villa Castelli' a good surmise - there was very unlikely to be a town pre castle as the Castle was built on a defensive dry bit of gravel surrounded by bog (bits of C'town still known as bog garden etc until 18th C) - the town grew to service the castle which prossibly took its name from the Abbey but there is much conjecture around this (much the same way Ballasalla grew to service the Abbey In Profile of Castletown by Derek Winterbottom, he writes: "...it is likely that people made their homes near what is now the beach at Derbyhaven from Mesolithic times", (c.10,000 to 5000 BCE), and, "close to the Dumb river on the outskirts of Castletown there was an Iron Age round house taking the form of two concentric circles about 180ft across. The outer ring a stockade for animals and the inner ring the main house constructed with brushwood and wattle walls supported by wooden posts and boasting a central fire-hearth made of marble slabs", (model of this in the Manx Museum). Following the colonisation of the IOM by the Vikings at the end of the 9th century, there was all the pomp around the ship-burial of the Viking warrior at Balladoole. From this, I would imagine that there had to have been some sort of significant settlement there as, according to Sir David Wilson, the buried viking must have been an important first generation Norse settler in the Island. Fascinating stuff. I would love to time-travel!
  7. Thank you BM. However, by replying to this annoying little shit it means I get to see his comment and I have him on blocked as he is a retard who gets his rocks off from following me obsessively around MF. Sad little man. Just block him until he gets bored and goes away!
  8. Town. Construction of Castle Rushen is thought to have taken place during the late 12th century/early 13th century. Prior to having a castle, the town must have had a different name before becoming Balley Chashtal. I'm pretty sure the castle was already there when the monks at Rushen Abbey wrote the Chronicles of Mann, so I don't suppose it was noted down anywhere. Interesting thought!
  9. easy mistake, according to Marc Tiley on Manx Radio it is a Carsal and Sulby is Sowby. 'easy', only if you have absolutely no knowledge at all of the IOM, and even then, common sense would dictate it was more likely to be Castletown than Cassletown. I find it quite staggering that someone posting on MF really doesn't know that there is a town with that name on the Island....(I can forgive 'Carsal' because it's only someone trying to pronounce castle in a posh way but Cassle is just silly!)
  10. I assume you mean Castletown Road? Castletown, because it is a town with a castle, not a town with a cassle. (ETA: Come on, people, make some efforts with your posts.....)
  11. And if the answer had been "She's Jane Doe from 123 High Street and her phone number is 123456"? What then? She might object to her contact details being posted in a public forum. There was a bit of a fuss recently when a female member had previously posted the name of the street where she lives and when it cropped up again in a more recent thread there were a number of posts deleted at her request even though she'd posted the info herself some time previously. Hang on a minute Old Git.... the female poster in question had originally posted about something happening near to where she lived and indeed stated the name of the area, a couple of years back. What followed recently was someone else taking it upon himself to publish that location information in relation to a post she made on an unrelated thread. It was at this point that an entirely different poster pointed out that it really wasn't good form to do this sort of thing and the offer was then made by those involved to happily remove all reference to it if she wished, which offer she accepted. Not sure how that amounts to a 'fuss'. Just to put the record straight here.
  12. Yes, I think people use the word 'hero' when it's someone they admire. I have referred to, for instance, Christoph Waltz as my hero but only in the romantic sense. I still appreciate when I read of people who have done truly heroic acts. Heroes seem to be ordinary people who, when confronted with a situation requiring immediate selfless action, have just done what was needed without any thought for their own safety. I think, for example, there was great heroism on the Titanic whereas these days I imagine most women and children would be trampled under foot in the 'everyone for himself' approach...!
  13. i As I have Jumped Up on block, I can only imagine from your post that he has declared himself King of the Fatties. This would make him thick, unpleasant and fat. It would also explain why my one post directed at him, (following nasty little comments about my kids), suggesting he has Mamma issues, prompted such a vile reaction and subsequent forum-stalking behaviour. Figures.
