Was King Orry The Best Ever

Recommended Posts

I advise against calling someone a Sock Puppet. They may not get the joke.

Awens to All:

When I did the Google for the Laxey Flood, I got a Map of Douglas that included a Pointer to the Monument Grave of King Orry.

I had never heard of King Orry but in my Travels through Peel and the various Museums I went to, I did learn of Viking Arrivals in around the Time of King Arthur and his Round Table in Camelot.

So I did a Google on the History of King Orry and found this Informative URL:

https://www.visitisleofman.com/things-to-do/king-orrys-grave-p1314511

 

And there is a Wikipedia Listing about the Site of King Orry's Grave:\

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_Orry's_Grave

 

And found another rather good Website about King Orry:

https://www.transceltic.com/isle-of-man/king-orrys-grave

 

I wish I had known of this Site in 2006 when I came through.  I would have Loved to stop by to have a Walk About of the Site.

There does not seem to any YouTubes on the History of King Orry.

Maybe get Charles Guard out on that.

Awens to All:

I have posted my Historical Research Findings on a couple of other Message Forums and it turns out that the Story of King Orry is not too well known outside of IoM even by someone whose Parents had once lived in Douglas.

Upon posting my Research onto The Social Dot Forum of The Druid Network, a fellow Druid 'Green Raven' posted this Link that I thought was rather Good:

Green Raven sends Healing Energies to those affected by the Laxey Flood.

Druid, I recommend you Google 'Manx Notebook.' It's stuffed with interesting info about the Island, going back centuries. It's free to use and will give you an insight as to how Manx culture developed. It's more interesting than you could imagine.

Green Raven being Martin Perkins's Mexican Wrestling name?

Just seen this. Outstanding. I challenge you to create a Mexican Wrestling name for each Tynwald member. I’ll start you off; Anne Corkill is “La Donna Mysterico” and Ashford is “Night Beast”.
