Description: Ronaldsway is the site of the Isle of Man airport and lies just inland on the south east coast of the Isle of Man (NGR 22850 46850). Brown's Popular Guide to the Isle of Man of 1876 says, "To the true-hearted Manxman this is almost sacred ground. Again and again its soil has been drenched with the best blood of his forefathers fighting for their freedom, and upon its fatal battle field the independence of the country sank for ever before the overwhelming power of Scotland. But, above all, it is endeared to him as the home of the patriot martyr of Mona, William Christian. (p. 242)
