LIVE: Isle of Man International Tournament 2016

The Isle of Man is a self-governing Crown dependency in the Irish Sea between England and Northern Ireland. The island has been inhabited since before 6500 BC. In the 9th century, Norsemen established the Kingdom of the Isles. Magnus III, King of Norway, was also known as King of Mann and the Isles between 1099 and 1103. In 1266, the island became part of Scotland and came under the feudal lordship of the English Crown in 1399. It never became part of the Kingdom of Great Britain or its successor the United Kingdom, retaining its status as an internally self-governing Crown dependency.
